Roughly crush the chilli flakes, cumin seeds and peppercorns using a pestle and mortar. Add some salt and sprinkle over both sides of the chicken. Chill until you are ready to cook.
In small bowl, mix the remaining sesame oil, sugar, soy sauce and lemon juice. Add the cabbage, onion and chilli to a large bowl, pour over half the dressing and mix well. Save remaining dressing to use as a dipping sauce for the chicken.
Heat grill to high. Place the chicken on a baking tray lined with foil, grill for 3-4 mins on each side until cooked through. Serve with the slaw, lemon halves, a scattering of coriander and dipping sauce.
