To make the marinade: Combine the chilli sauce, honey and soy sauce in a small bowl. Place the chops in a dish and pour over half the mixture. Set aside the rest to serve with the chops. Leave the chops to marinate for 10-15 minutes if you have time.

To cook the chops: Heat a barbeque or grill to high. Season the chops with a little salt and black pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on how thick they are.

Prepare the courgettes and carrots by slicing thinly, grating on a coarse grater or spiralizing if you have a machine.

Heat the oil in a large wok. Add the courgettes, carrots, red onion and garlic and stir-fry for a couple of minutes until the vegetable soften. Season with a little salt and black pepper and serve with the chops, potatoes and reserved marinade.

Serve the stir-fried vegetables with the chops, the reserved marinade and some potatoes which have been boiled and tossed in a little melted butter and chives.
