  1. Preheat the grill to its highest setting. In a small bowl, combine the honey, mirin (or sherry), soy, ginger and garlic for the glaze.
  2. Thread the chicken onto 8 small or 4 large metal skewers (or soaked, wooden skewers), alternating with a piece of spring onion. Brush the chicken pieces all over with the honey glaze. Cook under the grill (or in a hot griddle pan or on the barbecue) for 10–15 minutes, turning until golden and cooked through with no pink showing.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the slaw. In a bowl, combine the red cabbage, carrot, mangetout and spring onions. For the dressing, mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin (or sherry) and ginger in a jug. Pour over the slaw, add the sesame seeds and toss. Serve with the chicken skewers, garnished with some coriander sprigs, if you like.
