Return chicken to dish. Stir in the mustard, stock, apricot nectar and dried apricots and bring to the boil. Cover the dish with a lid or foil.

3. Bake for 40 minutes, adding cannellini beans for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.

4. Serve with steamed snow peas and broccolini.


Tip: You can swap the cannellini beans with another legume such as canned chickpeas or butter beans.
