  • 8 - chicken thighs, skinned
  • 1/4 teaspoons - smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoons - lemon juice
  • Mango Dressing
  • 1 - ripe mango, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 2 tablespoons - chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 2 tablespoons - lime juice
  • - a good twist of black pepper
  • Coleslaw
  • 1/4 - white cabbage, shredded
  • 2 - large carrots, peeled, grated
  • 1 - small red onion, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoons - white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons - lime juice
  • Directions:

    1. Remove the bones from the chicken thighs, using a small knife, and trim off all visible fat from the edges. Place them in a shallow bowl, add the smoked paprika and lemon juice and mix together well.

    2. Preheat the broiler to its highest setting or alternatively use a griddle. Cook the chicken for 7 minutes; turn the thighs over and then continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Check that they're cooked through by skewering the thickest part, making sure the juices run clear, and then leave them to cool on a board.

    3. Make the mango dressing by mixing together the mango dressing ingredients; set aside.

    4. Make the coleslaw by mixing together the cabbage, carrots, red onion, vinegar, and lime juice with some seasoning in a large bowl.

    5. Thinly slice the cooked chicken thighs and arrange on top of the coleslaw; spoon the mango dressing over the chicken and cover.

    Keep in fridge until ready to eat.
