A great crock pot recipe.If you don't want to use turmeric (it's rather pungent) you can use a dash of ground ginger instead. I like this with couscous, but you can use rice, my husband can't stand couscous ( I don't understand why), so I usually serve rice. If you do use couscous, cook it in pineapple juice instead of water, it is a great flavor twist! I got this from the Betty Crocker Slow Cooker Cookbook.

I don't know what it was about this recipe -- it seemed a lot blander than I thought it would be. Perhaps it was just not our cup of tea. Thanks for sharing, though. I love to try new recipes.
