    Brian Holley's Note:

    This is not a curried chicken recipe,but, and old Indian method of roasting chicken. Stuffed with apricots, ground almonds and eggs, and served with a masala gravy it makes a centre piece for a Indian meal. All you have to add is the spiced vegetables of you choice.

      This was amazing, and so easy! I had no apricots, so doubled the sultanas. There was more stuffing than would fit inside the chicken, so I put it in with the gravy. An easy, yummy, gluten-free recipe. Thanks so much! This one's going to become a regular with us, the chicken just melted off the bone (and in the mouth)!
