• Amazing Cabbage Chicken Saute

    This recipe is very inexpensive to prepare, feeds 5-7 people easily and is perfect for those that are watching their weight as it's low in fat, yet loaded with flavor.

    Ingredients:
    * 1 Onion - I use Red onions for both color & flavor but any onion will due
    * 1 T. Olive Oil
    * 1/2 head Cabbage, chopped into 1 inch pieces
    *Handful of Whole Mushrooms, sliced (usually 5-6 large mushrooms)
    * 1-2 Tsp. Minced Garlic (I generally use 1 Tablespoon, but we LOVE Garlic!)
    * 1/2 c. Chicken Stock
    * 1 lb
    Chicken Pieces cut into 1 inch pieces (boneless/skinless)
    * Salt & Pepper to Taste

    Heat olive oil in lg pan over medium/high heat. Once oil is hot, add onions, sauteing until they begin to caramelize. You want them to take on a nice golden brown sheen, as this adds lots of flavor later on.



    Add Garlic and cut up chicken, sauteing until chicken is no longer pink. Add sliced mushrooms and chopped cabbage, saute until cabbage is soft- 5-7 minutes.


    reduce heat, add chicken broth, cover and cook 5-7 minutes, until cabbage is tender. Remove the cover, turn the heat to high and saute 2 minutes to evaporate the remaining chicken stock.
    Season
    to taste with S&P, Serve immediately

    Chef Notes: this dish serves 4-6 easily, can be doubled with no issues. If you have teenagers or unexpected guests, serve this over hot steamed rice to extend it.
