Coriander & Apricot Chutney
150 g dried Turkish dried apricots

2 Tbsp (30 ml) white wine vinegar
Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Place all of the marinade ingredients into a bowl and whisk until combined. Season with NoMU Sea Salt and NoMU Black Pepper. Place the chicken in a dish and pour the marinade over, ensuring it is well coated. Cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge to marinate overnight.
The following day: Preheat the oven to 190 °C.
Place the chicken in a roasting tray and season lightly with NoMU Sea Salt and NoMU Black Pepper. Roast in the oven for about 1 hour or until the chicken is cooked and the juices run clear.
Coriander and Apricot Chutney
Place all of the chutney ingredients, except the coriander, into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Allow to simmer gently for about 15 minutes, or until apricots are soft and sticky.
Remove from the heat and add the coriander. Serve the roast tandoori chicken with the coriander and apricot chutney, naan bread, cucumber raita and fresh lemon wedges.
