Loved these small sandwiches & will certainly make them again, although I might use shredded chicken or turkey breast or pork! The important thing for us was the very nicely flavored chutney! Thanks for the keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
These sliders are delicious! I had to make a change though because there were no apricots at the grocery store. I bought 6 dried apricots and soaked them in hot water until I needed them and they worked just fine. I used mini ciabatta buns which were great with this. We enjoyed these with fresh cucumbers and grape tomatoes. Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks weekend cooker! :)
