BBQ Chicken With Apricot & Pistachio Nuts

Chicken is nice when cooked on the BBQ as you can get a little char grill to add some smoky flavour to the chicken.

However to turn a regular BBQ’d chicken fillet into a wonderfully flavoured meal, add a salsa of apricot, pistachio nuts, parsley and chilli.  The salsa is the key ingredient to make this a very tasty chicken meal.  The apricot and chicken blend beautifully together to create a sweet juicy mouthful.

Served with grilled potato slices and your favourite salad and this will be a very popular variation to any BBQ’d chicken meal.
