Cabbage with Chicken

Spread the love

This succulent Cabbage and Chicken is hearty, filling, and so delicious. Just a few ingredients and about 15 minutes of active cooking time make up this amazing dinner. This is my #1 Best Recipe yet!

This recipe has never failed me. It gets “Ooohs” and “Aaahs” from my family and friends every time I make it! This Sautéed Cabbage with Chicken is so flavorful, filling, and healthy that I cannot say enough good things about it. It is a MUST TRY and I hope you won’t skip this recipe.

Sautéed cabbage is a frequent ingredient in Ukrainian cuisine, with fresh cabbage used when it’s in season and pickled cabbage during the winter and spring. We (the Ukrainians) usually cook this dish with bacon, ribs, and pork. I also cook vegetarian cabbage quite often. A couple of years ago, I decided to try it with chicken and it exceeded all my expectations. Since then, I have regular requests for this dish from my husband, but to be honest with you – I love it more than anybody! It is by far my favorite dish in the world and I can eat it every day with a big spoon right out of the cooking pot. 🙂

This dish is also pretty easy to cook. It takes about 15 minutes of active cooking time and 45 more minutes to finish on the stove. Not bad, right? You can clean up the kitchen and set up the dinner table while the dish is cooking.

What kind of Paprika to Use for Cabbage with Chicken?

So many of you have asked me about the kind of paprika I use in this recipe. I recommend using sweet paprika. Typically just labeled as paprika, it has a sweet pepper flavor, without any heat. This paprika is sold in most grocery stores since it is a very popular kind. You can also buy sweet paprika on Amazon.

How to Make Cabbage with Chicken

1. Warm up a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and chicken. Fry for 5-7 minutes or until browned.

2. Meanwhile, slice the cabbage into thin strips, just like you would for coleslaw.

3. Add the paprika and tomato paste to the chicken. Stir, and then sauté for another five minutes.

4. Add the cabbage and cook for five more minutes.

5. Add the shredded carrots, chicken stock, salt, and pepper. Stir everything together.

6.  Cook without the lid, stirring occasionally, for about 40 minutes, until there is no liquid remaining.

7. Add 1 tablespoon of hot sauce, if desired. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Serve the cabbage with some rice or mashed potatoes on the side (check out my Mashed Potatoes with a Secret recipe) and sprinkle it with fresh chopped parsley.
