Chicken, Chickpeas, and Couscous

This is a simple, yet satisfying chicken dish that is perfect for solar cooking. The green beans were cooked along with it, in a parchment packet that I put on top of the dutch oven towards the end of the cooking time.

Sun Oven Chicken with Turmeric and Chickpeas

1 Tbs olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric
