Turmeric Spice Blend

  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp granulated onion
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Chicken and Broccolini

  • 1.5lbs chicken breast, skin on and bone in
  • 3 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
  • 2 bunches broccolini, (approximately 1 lb)
  • ¾ cup chicken bone broth or stock


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Add all of the spice ingredients to a small bowl and mix to combine. Liberally season the outside of the chicken with the blend and under the skin. Set aside.
  3. Heat a medium-sized dutch oven or oven-proof skillet to medium-high heat and add the chopped bacon. Cook until the bacon pieces are browned. Remove the bacon from the oil.
  4. Place the chicken skin-side down in the bacon grease and let fry for about 3 minutes or until skin is crispy. Remove from the skillet and set on a plate.
  5. Add the Broccolini and let sear for 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan, skin side up and place it around and on top of the broccolini.
  6. Add the broth to the pan and place it in the oven. Let cook for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees.
  7. Top the dish with the reserved bacon pieces and serve immediately.
