Cinnamon and Chicken..?? Of course !  Spicy Chicken with Coleslaw is a delicious, light dinner which is perfect for warmer weather. The Chicken is also not hot spicy, but if you have kids who absolutely do not like anything Chili, feel free to omit the Chili flakes in the recipe.

I have made this recipe which I have found in one of my oldest scrap books and adapted by me, with the Coleslaw and once, only once, served the chicken without.

The Chicken and the Coleslaw just seem to work better together than each on it’s own.

The presentation is also striking when the Chicken is served ON TOP of the Coleslaw. I usually serve this dish together with my Morrocan Butternut, or a similar side, and a slice or two of French Bread.

I use my George Foreman grill to cook the Chicken, but you can use a griddle pan, health grill or whatever you prefer to use to barbecue / grill meat.
