Ingredients
 

  • 2 medium chicken breasts, skin and bone free
  • 500 mls chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled and very finely chopped
  • 3 tsp mild curry powder
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 small glass of red wine
  • 1 small glass of water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 slices lemon
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • pinch ground pepper
  • pinch caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp apricot puree, made from semi dried prunes and a little water, then liquidised until you have a fine puree
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp whipped double cream
  • 8 slices basic white bread

Instructions
 

  • Poach the chicken breasts in chicken stock until just cooked then remove and chill.
  • Heat the oil and add the onion and curry powder cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the tomato puree, wine, water, and bay leaves, and bring to a simmer.
  • Add the lemon slices and a squeeze of lemon.
  • Reduce by about half.
  • Remove lemon slices and bay leaves, but leave in the onions (Angela would not be happy) then cool.
  • Add mayo and puree to the cooled mixture and season well with salt, pepper, sugar, and lemon juice to taste.
  • Chop the chicken into small pieces, then add enough mayo sauce to just coat the chicken.
  • Add a little whipped cream and gently fold in.
  • Spoon onto bread slices, top and remove crusts, then cut into 3 fingers!
  • Serve, this sauce is also recommended for poached lobster, which I think would work really well.
