Chicken & Cabbage Skillet Dinner

Chicken & Cabbage

This is a 1-skillet dinner for two.
I used green or Savoy cabbage which cooks faster then red or white cabbage. Adjust cooking time accordingly.


  • 12oz (360 gr) chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/3 Savoy cabbage, about 3 cups, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs minced ginger
  • 1 carrot, peeled, cut into matchsticks. 
  • 1/2 cup (3.3 oz, 95 gr) Basmati rice
  • 1 1/4 cups (10 oz, 300 ml) chicken broth
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbs olive oil


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add onions, ginger, garlic, chicken and stir-fry 5 minutes.
  • Add rice, carrot, cabbage and stir-fry 5 minutes longer.
  • Add broth, soy sauce, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 – 25 minutes, (until rice is done) stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Serve from the skillet. 


Basmati rice cooks in about 15 minutes. Check cooking times for your rice.
Substitute 1/2 tsp ground ginger for the fresh
