Perfect recipe for my husband who just found out he has gallstones . . . it was a huge hit tonight . . . even our picky boys like it . . . I did add thinly sliced shallots for more flavor.

Very tasty chicken. I marinated it overnight, then cooked it on the grill. Did the onions in a grill basket. It was easy and good, and turmeric is supposed to be very healthy for you.
