Chicken and Apricot Ballotines with Mushroom and Tarragon Sauce



This chicken recipe sees thigh fillets wrapped in Parma ham and around dried apricots for a sweet-meets-savoury flavour, before being simmered in a rich sauce flavoured with mushrooms, crème fraiche and tarragon. Serve with rice on the side for a wonderful dinner that is easy to prepare but looks simply stunning.
