The Filling

The Chicken

Cut a hole into the sides of the chicken pieces and fill with apricot mixture. Fix with skewers. Heat oil in a pan and sauté the chicken breasts on both sides until golden brown. Season with salt. Remove chicken breasts from the pan and set aside.

The Creamy Pepper Sauce

Then fry mushrooms and onions in the same pan before it cools, for about 3 minutes. Melt Oldenburger Butter in the same pan, dust with flour and cook for about 2 minutes.
