About this recipe: Chicken, nuts and apricots flavoured with tangy fresh basil make a refreshing summer-style stir-fry. Serve with rice noodles or fluffy white rice for a healthy meal in moments. Delicious!
*Buy ingredients such as chicken and dried apricots ready chopped, to save cutting them up (and reduce the washing-up). *There is a wide variety of prepared stir-fry vegetables, sold individually, in multi-vegetable packs or in prepared mixes, fresh or frozen, which can be used instead of the pepper, courgette, celery and spring onions. Check portion sizes on the pack – allow about 500g prepared vegetables for four people.
it was good but I found the sauce, or lack of sauce disapointing. I added some Oyster sauve that I luckily had on hand and it was perfect! I will make it again and again, but always with a few tablespoons oyster sauce as my last step. - 01 Oct 2011
Threw away the first batch of cashews - those little suckers really burn quickly. My SO needs GF and is allergic to the stuff they put in dried apricots - so I subbed Prunes and we hate courgettes so I subbed Red Pepper - also used left over Roast Chicken from Sunday and Lemon cos I forgot the lime and Sake' cos I forgot the Sherry. That said, Summer marvel. Really fresh-tasting on the pallette and SO has had me email her the recipe. It's a keeper she says! Only middle-easy on account of a fair bit of prep - not really that taxing just not what I would call 'Easy'. Bon Appe'tit - 11 Mar 2013
Took shortcuts. I used pre-cooked and sliced , frozen chicken breast and it worked really well - 31 Aug 2009
