  1. Delicious and very flavorful. The marinade was really easy to make and the turmeric added such a nice rich color. Took only a few minutes to grill. I used assorted colors of baby bell peppers and I added both lemon juice and the yogurt. We really enjoyed the zucchini and the chicken was nice and tender. Nancy : )
