Chefs Tip
This recipe works really well with leftover roast chicken. Swap the apricots for prunes and serve with minted yoghurt for a quick and easy change.

Love your Leftovers
If you are going to store leftover roast to make this recipe, cool it as quickly as possible (ideally within 90 minutes) cover it and place into the fridge. Always use your leftovers within two days of storage. Ensure you cook this recipe until it’s steaming hot throughout and importantly, never reheat leftovers more than once.

The optimum time and temperature varies by individual ovens – these are guidelines only. Please ensure all cooked recipes are served piping hot. Keep raw meat separate from cooked food. Use separate kitchen utensils and surfaces for raw and cooked foods, or wash thoroughly in between use. Wash hands after handling raw meat.
