This is yummo!!! I loved the apricot chipotle glaze, it was delicious. This is very quick and easy to put together and made for great mid week meal and best of all the end result is wonderful. I served ours with avocado salsa, a couple of prawns and some sliced mango and red pepper. I will be enjoying this one again and soon as it is winner for us. Cheers Vicki for a fab meal and again love that sauce!!
