1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Rinse chicken inside and out and pat dry with paper towels.
2 To make the stuffing, place bread in a processor and pulse to form crumbs. Add kaffir lime leaf and parsley and pulse again. Add apricots. Add more kaffir lime leaves for extra flavour if desired. Mix in egg.
3 Place stuffing inside chicken cavity.
4 To prepare marinade, combine ingredients in a saucepan. Heat gently until jam is dissolved.
5 Lift skin of chicken at the neck and slide your fingers underneath to separate skin from the breast. Brush or spoon some marinade under the breast skin on both sides. Use kitchen twine to tie the legs of the bird together.
6 Place chicken in a heatproof dish and baste with marinade. Roast for 1 1/2 hours depending on size of chicken. Baste frequently with remaining marinade during cooking. Serve warm or cold.
