Serves 4
  • Steps
  • Ingredients


  • Preheat oven to 190C.
  • For the Spiced Chicken, heat a small fry pan over medium heat. Add fennel, coriander, cumin and black peppercorns and toast until fragrant. Transfer to a mortar and pestle and grind to a fine powder.
  • Place spice powder into a large bowl and add chicken pieces. Toss to coat evenly then cover with cling film and set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • For the Bourbon Glaze, combine bourbon, ginger, garlic, jalapenos, ginger beer, vinegar and sugar into a small saucepan over medium heat and reduce to a thickened syrup consistency. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Remove Spiced Chicken from the fridge. Heat a large frypan over medium heat, add chicken pieces and fry until golden brown on all sides, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer chicken pieces onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and brush with the Bourbon Glaze. Bake in the oven, basting chicken with the glaze every 5 minutes, until the all pieces are cooked through, about 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to rest.
  • For the Slaw Dressing, whisk lemon and lime juices, sugar, chilli and salt together in a bowl until sugar has dissolved. Set aside.
  • For the Cabbage and Apple Slaw, peel and julienne apples then place into a large bowl with ginger beer, chardonnay vinegar and some ice and set aside to infuse for 10 minutes. Slice cabbage thinly and place into a separate bowl. Once apple has infused, add sliced cabbage to the bowl of apple and toss to combine. Add reserved Slaw Dressing and toss to coat.
  • To serve, slice chicken breasts in half. Place half a chicken breast and one drumstick onto each plate. Spoon some Cabbage and Apple Slaw to the side of the chicken.
