2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 medium thinly sliced yellow onion

2 tablespoon turmeric powder

1 crank of Salt and Pepper shaker

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Cooked basmati or jasmine rice, for serving

Chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems, for garnish

Instructions: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, turmeric, pepper, and salt. Cook and stir occasionally for about 5 minutes. Next place the chicken on a large plate, season with salt and turmeric. Next push the onions to the outside edge of the pan and place the chicken in the middle of the pan. Continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Next flip the chicken and cook for 2 more minutes. Then pour in the wine and cook for 1 minute until you pour the cream and the broth and stir gently. Finally reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Set over rice and garnish with some cilantro.
