Curry Marinated Chicken

Getting enough lean proteins in your diet is crucial during pregnancy for your baby’s development – but who wants the same old chicken all the time? Not I. Here is a quick, simple and above all easy marinate that adds a burst of flavour to your chicken. A great tip is to put the marinade and chicken into a zip lock bag and freeze it. Thaw when you want to eat it and the time it spends defrosting it will also be sitting in the marinade! Go ahead and make a bunch all at once so that when the little one arrives you will have a great meal in your freezer.

¼  cup lemon juice
¼ cup Olive oil
1 TBSP Thyme
1 TBSP Yellow Curry Powder
½ TBSP Turmeric Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 chicken breasts skin on

Combine first 5 ingredients in a shallow bowl. Add salt and pepper to chicken breasts then add the breasts to the marinate. Allow chicken to rest in marinate for at least 20 – 30 minutes. Turning the pieces of meat ½ way through.

Cook chicken on the BBQ or in the oven until no longer pink in the middle and meat has reached 180 degrees at the thickest part of the breast. Skin can be discarded before eating, but leaving it on during cooking adds moisture and flavour.
