When life gets busy, almost one-pan/sheet pan dinners like this Baked Chicken With Turmeric Sauce become staples. And good thing, because this recipe is creamy, savory goodness on a plate!
Guys, two days ago Cody and I became official home owners! We closed on our 1925 bungalow home (photos coming soon) and could not be more excited. As many of you know, the home hunting process can be a crazy one (which I talked about in the Healthy Chicken Fajita Tacos and Healthy Sriracha Shredded Chicken Tacos posts), but thankfully ours was pretty smooth overall. We’re so happy to be on this side of things!
And now the work begins. 🙂 If you follow along over on my personal Instagram, you might have seen my virtual tour of the home and the remodeling/decor plans we have for it. As soon as we got the keys to the house, we went straight to the paint store, but 3 samples of white paint, and tested it on our walls. Who knew that having to decide between 3 ever-so-slightly different shades of white could be so difficult! Cool white? Creamy white? Pure white? Can’t decide.
Side note: Cody really wants to name our house Edna because he feels the need to name everything, LOL (that one time he named his sourdough bread starter Henrietta….yeah…). Thoughts? What should we name it?
Needless to say, we will now be spending every evening and most weekends working on the house. We move in July, so we have a little over a month to get as much done as possible! With that comes this reality: we’re already busy people, but things are about to get SUPER busy. Thank goodness for easy go-to dinner recipes like this Baked Chicken with Turmeric Sauce!
Here’s how to make this Baked Chicken with Turmeric Sauce:
You’ll need chicken, seasoning of choice (I love this one), turmeric powder, kale, quinoa, and potatoes. It’s almost a one-pan recipe because you’ll actually bake the chicken, roast the potatoes, and roast the kale on the same sheet pan. However, while everything is baking/roasting, the quinoa will be cooked separately. The turmeric sauce will also be made separately (don’t worry, it’s SO easy to make)!
Also, pre-cooked quinoa is a life saver for busy times like these! Definitely recommend it. 😉

Personally (as IF you haven’t noticed), I’m a little bit obsessed with turmeric these days. I hope you enjoy this Baked Chicken with Turmeric Sauce recipe as much as Cody and I did!
