String chicken pieces on four skewers and sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper, garlic salt and a whisper of curry powder. Grill until chicken tests done (170 degrees). In a small pan mix preserves and water or juice. Heat until steamy and well mixed. Set out four plates and on each place a chicken kebab and two apricot halves, cavity side up. Sprinkle with pistachios and scallions and drizzle with hot apricot sauce. Serves 4.
Complete the plate with a buttery croissant and serve buttercrunch lettuce salad on the side.
