The instruction how to make Honey and apricot chicken

  2. Place apricots, butter, honey and garlic in a food processor. Process until just smooth. Spoon apricot mixture into chicken pockets. Secure with 1 or 2 toothpicks. Season both sides chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Make coriander couscous: Place couscous in a large, heatproof bowl. Pour over boiling water. Cover and stand for 3 minutes or until water is absorbed. Stir with a fork to separate grains. Add onion, lime rind, 2 tablespoons lime juice, cucumber, walnuts and coriander. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Spray both sides chicken with oil. Barbecue for 4 to 5 minutes each side or until cooked through. Remove toothpicks. Thickly slice and serve with coriander couscous.
