Tomato Tumeric Chicken

The Tomato Tumeric Chicken is a Southeast Asian dish that is distant cousin of Curry Chicken but extremely different in its flavour. Bits of chicken are rubbed with turmeric and salt, combined with the subtle heat from chilies, tangy tomatoes and creamy coconut milk. Top it off with fresh cilantro and slather it over a heaping portion of rice.
