An easy weeknight braise with minimal ingredients that still results in big flavors.
This recipe is a weeknight dream -- if you have chicken thighs, Vanns Turmeric and Sumac, and some limes and garlic in your fridge and pantry, you have the ingredients to make this flavorful braise. The simplicity of the ingredients makes for a brightly flavored (and colored) dish that can be served with a side of Israeli couscous and a simple salad to make a full meal of it. The sumac sprinkled on top gives the chicken thighs a tanginess, while the turmeric grounds the braise in earthy spice. Once you've made this recipe once, you'll want to keep the ingredients on hand for the next time you're searching for some dinner inspiration!

Have you ever heard of sumac? If you live in the American South, you may think of it as a weed. But hopefully after making this recipe, you will now think of it as a delicious weed.
