Very tasty for a quick weeknight meal. A few notes: 1) turkey cutlets were impossible to find, so I just used a thicker type of raw turkey and cut it in thinner slices and it worked fine. 2) We found that there were too many potatoes, and that they needed to be cut in smaller pieces. 3) The spices are excellent if you like ginger. We did not, however, think that the whole recipe was as flavorful as it could have been because the turkey and spices get cooked together and then the rest gets added. We're thinking it will be better day 2 when everything is coated with seasoning.

Substituted the turkey for chicken as it's what was available- still yummy!
