Apricot sauce


We liberally apply the sauce to chicken as one does when the taste is great and there's plenty to apply. The sauce has a true apricot flavour that is taken to a higher level by the unusual combination of non-apricot ingredients which the Thermomix blends beautifully. It is a great complement to white meat.
