I will try not to get off-topic much, but here is one study that I really want to share with you all. This relatively new study is about the effects that curcumin (found in turmeric) has on us humans. The findings are very interesting.

Actually, curcumin is not only anti-inflammatory but it also improves visual memory and attention, and lot more. If you would like to read the entire study just follow this link.

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F). If you are using a skillet that has a lid, you won’t need the oven at all.
  2. Put chicken thighs in the ziplock bag and add all the spices. Toss everything around until chicken thighs are completely covered.
  3. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Fry chicken thighs (first skin side down) for 4-5 minutes on each side, until golden, and then remove from skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same oil (that is now flavored with spices) cook finely diced onion and garlic for 2 minutes, until onion becomes translucent. Then add rice and fry for 30 seconds or so before adding water/chicken stock.
  5. When water comes to boil return the chicken thighs (skin side up), transfer everything to the preheated oven (or cover with the lid) and cook until all the water is absorbed by the rice, and chicken thighs are tender and cooked through. That can take around 10-15 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately garnished with chopped parsley or cilantro. Enjoy!
