    for some reason, this is showing 10/10 for children and 1/10 for adults. it should be the other way around!!

    Hot, spicey and warming one-pot meal with a lovely contrasting sweetness from apricots and honey. This makes a wonderful one-pot vegetarian meal if you simply omit the chicken and use extra mushrooms etc or some chopped courgette. The flavours intensify if you make it the day before.
