Healthy Recipes: Turmeric Chicken Skewers with Zesty Yogurt Dip

Put some tumeric in your tummy!

Are you looking for a natural way to support your health and well-being? Enter turmeric! This golden spice has been prized in traditional medicine for centuries and boasts incredible health benefits, particularly for those over the age of 35.

One of the key active compounds in turmeric is curcumin, which has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties help to fight free radicals in the body, reduce inflammation, and support the immune system, all of which become even more important as we age.

Studies have shown that incorporating turmeric into your diet can help lower your risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. It's also been found to support brain health, improve digestion, and even alleviate arthritis symptoms.

So, how can you enjoy the amazing health benefits of turmeric? Incorporate it into your meals! A simple way to do this is by adding turmeric powder to your dishes. It pairs well with savory foods like chicken, vegetables, and rice. You can also brew yourself a cup of turmeric tea or take a turmeric supplement.

Turmeric Chicken Skewers with Zesty Yogurt Dip

Alright then, here's a recipe featuring the super duo of chicken and turmeric for those hunting for a healthy meal that's as delicious as it is nutritious!


  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Firstly, we need to create the marinade. Take the turmeric powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and mix them all up in a bowl. Now, add the cubed chicken and toss until all the chicken is coated, top to bottom, in the vibrant yellow spices.

  2. After that, skewer the chicken cubes onto wooden skewers, making sure not to pack them too tight. Remember - when hungry for goodness, presentation is of vital importance too!

  3. Cook the skewered chicken on a grill pan at medium-high heat and cook for 4-6 minutes per side. Be sure to turn them occasionally. The chicken is done when it's no longer pink in the middle and gives a comforting amount of resistance when poked by a fork.

  4. While the chicken is cooking, whip up your yogurt dip choice. Mix together the plain yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper. Give it a good whisk until all the components have merged together in perfect harmony to create a unique zesty dip.

  5. Once the chicken is cooked to perfection, bring them off the grill and serve hot with a cool dollop of your yogurt dip. Deliciousness and health have never been more in sync. Enjoy!

And there you have it, a healthy recipe that boasts the health benefits of chicken and turmeric with a zesty dip twist. Get those taste buds singing and your mind at ease knowing all the nutritional goodies that are being absorbed. Bon appétit!
