Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 600g boneless, skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 60ml buttermilk
  • 60g light mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 large fennel bulb, cored and finely sliced
  • ½ celeriac, peeled and cut into fine strips
  • 2 sprays of olive oil (using an olive oil spray)
  • 1 bag green salad leaves, to serve

Method

  1. 1

    Combine the maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, orange zest and half the orange juice. Bash the chicken with a rolling pin to flatten slightly and pour the marinade over the top. Season well and leave to marinate for a minimum of an hour, ideally overnight.

  2. 2

    To make the slaw, whisk together the buttermilk, mayo, mustard and lemon juice. Add the fennel and celeriac, season and mix well. Keep chilled until required.

  3. 3

    To cook the chicken thighs, heat a griddle pan over a medium to high heat and spray with an olive oil mister. Griddle the chicken for 8-10 minutes, spooning over the extra marinade as the chicken cooks. When sticky and cooked through, remove and rest for five minutes.

  4. 4

    Serve the chicken with a green salad and the slaw on the side.
