Continue the Asian theme of this meal by serving the chicken and slaw with rice noodles tossed with thinly sliced scallions. A honey-ginger marinade with a hint of lime gives the chicken a flavor boost while also serving as a tenderizer. The marinade has a sesame oil base which adds a toasted and nutty flavor. We used a zip-close plastic bag to marinade the chicken in for easy clean-up. After grilling the salad, serve it with the vibrant coleslaw mixture that includes radishes, carrots, cucumber, cilantro and mint.
