Method

  1. To make the slaw, combine the mooli and carrot in a medium bowl. In a jug, mix the mayonnaise, vinegar and chives with some seasoning and a pinch of sugar. Pour the dressing over the veg and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan. Rub the chicken with the oil and season well. Brush each piece with the barbecue sauce and griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through with no pink meat remaining.
  3. To assemble the baguettes, stuff each one with a couple of chicken pieces and a few cucumber ribbons. Top with the slaw, then scatter over the chilli (if using) and coriander.
