Green Apple Slaw with Grilled Spiced Chicken Serves 4 For slaw: 2 medium green apples, each cored and cut into matchstick-size strips ½ small head green cabbage, outer leaves removed
First, prepare the slaw. Toss together apple strips, sliced cabbage, sliced red onion, and chopped mint in a large bowl. Stir together lemon juice, mayonnaise, honey, and cayenne in a separate small bowl; pour over apple mixture and toss well. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside while preparing chicken. Mix together cumin, brown sugar, chili powder, and cayenne in a small bowl. Brush chicken with oil, and rub in spice mixture. Season generously with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat in a grill pan or on an outdoor grill for about 7 minutes a side, or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Serve with prepared slaw.
