Turmeric is the ground root of a tropical plant. It has a slightly pungent gingery flavor and an intense yellow-orange color. If you prefer not to use turmeric, you may want to add a dash of ground ginger instead. The color will be a little bit lighter, but the flavor will be just as good!
Couscous is as fun to say as it is to serve! Make about 3 cups of couscous to go with these saucy chicken legs. It only takes minutes to prepare and will soak up all that wonderful sauce that is spooned over the chicken. For a flavor twist that goes great with this dish, cook the couscous in pineapple juice instead of water.
