Mix the couscous, tarragon, apricots and seeds, then season and cover.

Boil the cabbage for 5 minutes, then rinse in cold water. Reserve the 4 largest leaves, and spread out 4 more. Finely shred the 2 remaining leaves and mix with the couscous.

Place the couscous on 4 leaves, laying strips of chicken over the centre and wrap into a parcel. Place each parcel onto a large leaf, seam side down, and fold into a bundle

Cook with the cider in a covered pan for 12 minutes. To serve, remove the outer leaf.
