Used the coleslaw recipe as part of a recent American night - flavour was fantastic and so easy to make. The dressing was great and so low fat - what's not to like! The crisp apple just made it, I also added a few toasted pecan nuts for a little nod to America, they were lovely. I will definitely make this again when it's time to get the BBQ out - roll on summer.!

Chicken was a bit dry but tasted good, was simple enough for my 9 year old daughter to help with

I loved the crispy chicken and will try it again - not too keen on the coleslaw though. Next time I think I'll try it with Nigella Lawson's (New Orleans) coleslaw which is much nicer and maybe add a little grated parmesan into the breadcrumb mixture for extra flavour.

Very tasty recipe. Tastes are balanced. Finally I could eat my favourite breaded chicken without guilty. Only one thing I did not like in the slaw: the celery. I think next time I will miss it out.
