Hoisin Pulled Chicken with Fresh Chilli Slaw

I thought I might jump on the pulled meat bandwagon so I used my favourite meat and my favourite flavouring.

The slaw is fresh with a good hit of chilli, you’ll love it.

For the slaw

¼ approx. – White Cabbage (shredded)
1 – Carrot (shredded)
1 – Chilli (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons – White Wine Vinegar
2 tablespoons – Olive Oil

You can buy boneless chicken thighs but I had some chicken legs that I boned myself, purely because I hate to pay for something that I can do myself.

Just lay the leg on the chopping board then cut the entire length to the bone and tease out the complete bone.

Take the chicken out of the oven and place it on a plate then put the sauce on the hob.

Reduce the sauce and mix in the corn flour then simmer for about 10 minutes on a medium heat.

Pull the chicken apart with two forks then keep warm until the sauce is ready.
