Barbecue chicken with simple slaw


2 tsp root ginger, peeled and grated
150ml tomato ketchup
3 tbsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
800g essential Waitrose British Chicken Thighs
½ essential Waitrose Pointed Spring Cabbage, finely shredded
1 large carrot, coarsely grated
5 radishes, coarsely grated
4 salad onions, shredded
2 tbsp Waitrose Sherry Vinegar & Tarragon Dressing
1 tsp Bart Nigella Seeds


1. In a large bowl, mix together the ginger, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce. Slash the chicken thighs with a small sharp knife then add to the bowl and mix until evenly coated, making sure the sauce goes into the slashes.

2. Grill for 25 minutes, turning once or twice until nicely browned and cooked through without any pink meat.

3. Meanwhile, mix together the cabbage, carrot, radishes and salad onions. Add the dressing and nigella seeds and toss together well.

4. Serve the barbecue chicken with the simple slaw and flatbread.
