I love quick and easy meals! this recipe is just like that and it's delicious and full of flavor, I love turmeric but sometimes I just forget to use it in my dishes. Take a look: 

  * Tip *: You can swap the zucchini for broccoli or cauliflower. 
For vegans or vegetarians: substitute the chicken for tofu. Give it a try!
