Grilled Turmeric Chicken

from Le Cordon Bleu

Grill indoors or outdoors!

Yield:  4 servings


  • 1/2 small bunch cilantro (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon powdered turmeric
  • 1/2 cup garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 small shallot, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 8 chicken drum sticks


Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. 

In a blender, food processor or mortar and pestle combine all of the ingredients except the chicken. Blend or grind into a smooth paste. Transfer the paste to a mixing bowl or zipper lock plastic bag and add the chicken. Toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

Wipe any excess marinade from the chicken and grill, turning occasionally, until cooked through, about 8 minutes total. Serve warm.
