1.Combine all of the paste ingredients and process. You could also use a mortar and pestle. Add a little water if it needs it.
2.Heat the oil in a large pan. Brown the chicken on one side, then remove from pan. Add the paste and fry for 3-4 minutes or until it gives up its lovely aromas. Add in the tomatoes, soy sauce, kaffir limes leaves (fold and crush these before adding them) and salt, simmering for 3-5 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Return chicken to the pan and simmer for 10 minutes before adding in the coconut milk and apricots. Cook until the fruit is soft – about 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and add more salt or lemon/lime juice as needed.
3.Serve with a side of rice and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

*Check label if avoiding gluten. The cashew nuts act as a thickener in this recipe, but if you’re avoiding nuts, it’s fine to leave them out.
