1
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4

To begin, cook the bulgur wheat in the chicken stock for around 5 minutes at a simmer or until softened. Drain and set aside
3
Mix the bulgur wheat with the preserved lemon, garlic, apricots, herbs, chilli flakes and some salt and pepper

Use your finger to make a pocket between the skin and the flesh of the poussin breasts. Divide the mixture between them, stuffing any leftover stuffing into the cavity

Rub the poussin all over with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 minutes or until the juices run clear and the birds are cooked through
