- 1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces, rinsed, patted dry
- 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
- 1 Tbsp. garlic, minced

- In a large bowl, combine cut-up chicken with ginger, garlic, turmeric, coriander and cayenne. Toss together well, cover and marinade in fridge for 2-4 hours.
- Pre-heat oven to 350º. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil. Sauté the chicken for 2-4 minutes on both sides until golden brown. Transfer chicken to a casserole dish that’s oven-proof.
