Grease a shallow oven dish and preheat the oven to 200°c.
Place the chopped onion, water and chopped apricots into a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes on a medium to high heat. Drain and set aside.
Melt the coconut oil in the same pan and add the chestnuts. Ensure the chestnuts are coated in the coconut oil and fry for a few minutes. Whilst they are frying gently chop the chestnuts roughly with your wooden spoon.
Transfer the chestnuts, and the onion-apricot mix into a mixing bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, herbs, salt and pepper and combine thoroughly.
Place the mixture into the oven dish, brush the top with melted coconut oil and bake for approximately 30 minutes until the stuffing is golden brown and crispy on top.
TIP: If you are preparing this in advance, cool and cover the dish with foil and freeze until the day before you need it. Ensure the stuffing is fully defrosted before cooking in a hot oven for around 10 minutes.
