The chicken was great. But I felt the tumeric killed the taste. If I cook this again, I think I'll try it with only 1 tablespoon.

I decided to make this because I had all the ingredients on hand. I couldn't figure out where it would get it's flavour from and was right....It was bland (tumeric doesn't have much of a taste on it's own) and just not something I'd make again.

My husband and I both loved this recipe. I used "frozen" peppers in 3 colors that made it very pretty too! Mildly spicy from the tumeric, children may not like it. Add some brocoli, a great low carb meal!!
