This is an adaptation on a recipe that was emailed to me. The original recipe was from The New Family Cookbook for People with Diabetes. It goes well with Apricot Chicken for the Gourmet Crock Pot.

Yum! Great blend of flavors and came out perfectly cooked. I made all as directed apart from using some fresh chives instead of the parsley.
