Chicken with coleslaw

Instead of fresh rolls, I used ciabatta’s for the chicken and coleslaw, what was very nice too. You just have to cut the chicken thigh up a little and spread it out together with the coleslaw over your bread. Very nice indeed.

Ingredients (serves 4)

4 higher-welfare chicken thighs
1 lemon
1 red chilli , halved, deseeded and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic , crushed
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 fresh rolls , halved
For the coleslaw
2 carrots
1 small white cabbage , outer leaves torn off, cut into 4 wedges
1 small onion , peeled and very finely sliced
2 tablespoons fat-free natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 handful rocket


Preheat your oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6. Mix the chicken with the zest and juice of the lemon, the sliced chilli and the garlic, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and leave to marinate for half an hour.
Peel the carrots, throw away the peel and then keep stripping until you get a pile of carrot ribbons. Slice the cabbage as finely as you can with a sharp knife. Place the carrot and cabbage in a bowl with the sliced onion, the yoghurt and the mustard. Mix well and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Place the chicken thighs on a tray, skin side up, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the skin is crispy and the meat’s cooked through.
Take the chicken thighs out of the oven, leave to cool slightly until you can handle them and then pull the bone out of the middle (you might need a little knife to do this). Toast the halved rolls under a hot grill or in the oven, and fill with rocket salad and a chicken thigh. Serve with the coleslaw and tuck in!
Tip: If you don’t like the idea of cutting out the bone, buy your chicken thighs ready boned.
