Add the turkey to it, and let it cook for a few minutes. Combine the tomato sauce, tomatoes, chili seasoning, brown sugar, kidney beans, and chickpeas in the Crock Pot. Add the onion and turkey mixture to it, and stir well. Cover the Crock Pot, and let the mixture cook over high heat for 2-3 hours.
