  • 4 chicken thighs boneless - skinless
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup low fat - whatever that is
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 orange juice and zest from it
  • 1 small white cabbage thinly sliced into strips (we used a small bag of pre-sliced cabbage)
  • 2 medium carrots cut into thin matchsticks (we used pre-cut matchstick carrots)
  • 1 small onion peeled, cut in half and thinly sliced into half rings
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise low fat, it was dry so we used 2 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the honey, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, orange juice and orange zest in a small bowl and whisk together.
  • Cut some slash marks into the chicken thighs and add them to the bowl with marinade to coat completely.
  • Place the chicken thighs into a shallow baking dish or tray and cook for 30 minutes or until tender. After the first 15 minutes of cooking, coat the chicken thighs with the leftover marinade using a spoon.
  • While the chicken thighs are baking, prep the vegetables. Combine the cabbage, carrots and onion.
  • Add the mayonnaise and fennel seeds, stir to combine and taste. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • When the chicken is done, serve some cole slaw onto a plate, top with one of the chicken thighs and serve.
