Let’s take a look at the recipe!
SAUTEED CABBAGE AND CHICKEN
Ingredients: (makes 2-4 servings)
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. boneless and skinless chicken breast cut into very small pieces
- 1 small cabbage, chopped into very short thin strips (as if you were making coleslaw)
- 2 carrots, peeled and shredded
- 2 tomatoes, finely chopped or pureed
- 1 Tbsp. paprika
- 2 bay leaves
- 3/4 cup chicken stock (or you can use water)
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
- optional toppings (fresh parsley or a dollop of plain greek yogurt)
1.) In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and sauté for 7-10 minutes until cooked through.
2.) Add the cabbage and paprika to the frying pan. Stir to combine and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.
3.) Add the tomato, carrots, bay leaves, and chicken stock to the frying pan. Cover and cook for 25-30 minutes until the stock is completely absorbed, and no liquid is remaining.
4.) Transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper to serve. If desired, top with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt and fresh parsley.
Wait until you sink your teeth into this stuff! SO tasty and good for you! Enjoy! 🙂
