Balsamic Chicken and Cabbage Skillet

Chicken & Cabbage

The Balsamic vinegar lends a monotone look to this easy skillet dinner. The flavor is worth it!


  • 2 chicken breasts, (12oz, 360gr total) boneless, skinless, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cups roughly chopped Savoy cabbage
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cup (10oz, 300ml) chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup (2oz, 60ml) Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 2 tsp sage leaves, crumbled
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup (3.3oz, 95gr) Basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup (4oz, 120gr) Greek yogurt


  • Heat oil in large skillet.
  • Add onion, sauté until tender.
  • Add chicken and sauté until lightly browned.
  • Add rice, cabbage, thyme, sage, paprika and sauté 5 minutes, until cabbage starts to wilt.
  • Add broth, vinegar, Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 15 -20 minutes, (until rice is done) stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Uncover and stir in yogurt.
  • Serve from the skillet.


If you use white cabbage add it to the skillet with the onion. It takes longer to cook than the Savoy cabbage.
