Stir in the vinegar and oil. Finely chop the reserved green part of the spring onions, add with the radish and peppermint, season.

Pour the boiling hot stock over the apricots, cover and allow to steep for approx. 10 min.

Place the chicken strips on the skewers in an undulating pattern, with 3 apricots each. Combine the curry and remaining ingredients including the lemon juice and mix well. Coat the chicken all over with the mixture.

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, reduce the heat. Fry the skewers in batches over a medium heat for about 4 mins. on each side. Arrange the chicken skewers and mint & Ebly wheat salad together and garnish with the reserved peppermint.
