The classic pairing of orange and fennel gets a new twist with the addition of crunchy red cabbage and a creamy dressing. Make sure to add the oranges at the last minute -- they'll give the salad a brighter flavour if they sit in the dressing only briefly.

  • 400 g boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch salt

Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally to make thin cutlets; sprinkle with pepper and salt. Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid. Cook chicken, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together sesame seeds, honey and lime juice; brush all over chicken. Cook, turning once, until glazed, about 1 minute.
