Spicy peanut dressing

  • 2 tbsp peanut butter

  3. Place the chicken thighs, skin-side up on a broiler or baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 74°C, and the chicken is golden brown. Set aside to cool and then slice into 2″ x 1″ (5-2,5 cm) slices.
    Add the coleslaw ingredients to a large bowl, and in a smaller bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour it over the coleslaw, and give it a good mix!
