    Method

    1. Mix together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and set to one side.
    2. Pull the chicken apart a little into long, thin strips. Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick pan and add the chicken, stirring occasionally. It's good to get some nice, crispy edges on the chicken.
    3. While the chicken is cooking, add a grater attachment to a food processor and grate the carrot, red cabbage and white cabbage. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. If you don't have a food processor you can finely slice these ingredients but really, life is too short.
    4. Finely slice the spring onions, chilli and coriander and add to the mixing bowl.
    5. Once the chicken is cooked through, add it to the mixing bowl, add the dressing and give everything a good stir.
    6. Serve straight away. The combination of hot chicken and cold crunchy veggies is just amazing!
