Servings: 3


  • 1 lb skinless boneless chicken breasts about 3 breasts
  • 1/2 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons low sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Add oil to a cast iron skillet and turn heat on medium/medium-high heat.
  • Pat chicken dry and season with sea salt and black pepper. At this point your oil should be hot and the chicken should sizzle when added to the skillet.
  • Add all three pieces of chicken to the skillet and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • While chicken is searing combine maple syrup, tamari, garlic, turmeric and black pepper in a small bowl.
  • Once both sides of the chicken are seared, carefully pour maple turmeric sauce over chicken and toss to coat.
  • Move skillet from the stovetop into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked throughout. Serve warm and enjoy!
