Mrs Stovies has been craving chicken kebabs of late but to service that from the kebab shop round the corner would be a) really expensive and b) not very healthy seeing as there are always chips involved. A little tinkering in the kitchen and this babber beating ‘bab was born. This a a double whammy recipe, fresh and light coleslaw without the clagginess of mayo and super moist chicken. Brilliant on the barbecue. Enjoy.

Asian Slaw

½ white cabbage, finely shredded
2 carrots, grated
1 onion, finely sliced
2cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 red chilli, sliced
zest and juice 2 limes
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp honey

Another easy one here. Simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and leave to marinade for about 10 minutes before serving.

Ginger and Lime Chicken

Fresh chicken breasts
1cm fresh ginger, grated
juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp Tabasco sauce

Put it all together with some fresh chicken breasts and marinade for at least an hour before grilling or barbecuing. Serve in a warm pitta with a pile of slaw and salad leaves. No cutlery required.
