In order to create their masterpiece recipes, they need to barter with each other to get different ingredients for more flavorful dishes.

Amy chose to make Chicken and Apricot Curry while Ben made Apricot Chicken with Spinach and Stuffed Rice. Meanwhile, Laura concocted the Polenta with Apricot Chicken and Pangretata. Click HERE to see the latest recipes prepared by Amy, Ben and Laura.

On the other hand, Brent went the healthier route by incorporating the apricot chicken into a bed of greens for a delicious and nutritious salad. Renae also decided on using curry for her apricot chicken recipe.

Once again, the lucky "MasterChef Australia" 6 judges Gary Mehigan, Matt Preston and George Calombaris tasted each of the contestant's apricot chicken dishes.
