What I love most about this dish is the natural sweetness created with the caramalized onions, cinnamon, and crunchy chickpeas. Of course the sweet potato just compliments these flavors beautifully, acting only to enhance them instead of washing them out like some mashes can do. The flaked almonds are a value-added touch, and although the apricots (seen in the photo) are not specifically listed in the recip, I personally found them a delightful addition and highly recommend adding them in! Turkey can often run the risk of being a bit dry, but this marinade and delicate cooking method prevents this from happening. A winning dish!
