Chicken & Cabbage

If I were put on a desert island and told I could bring one meal and ice cream wasn’t available I’d choose sauté cabbage and chicken.

I’ve been making this forever and truly, I could pretty much eat it every night and not mind at all.  Its low in carbs, high in protein and quick to make.  The only thing is you’ve got to like cabbage.

Shred two medium heads of cabbage.

Heat a little bit of olive oil and a pat of butter in a pan until hot.  Add the shredded cabbage.  Keep the pan around medium heat.  I usually add a little bit of garlic salt.  Keep turning until the cabbage turns soft and starts turning brown.

Cook boneless skinless chicken breasts.  I use a  George Foreman; quick, easy, healthy.  Season with whatever you like.


Slice the chicken in strips and serve over the cabbage.  I’m telling you, try it.  I bet you will like it.  I have my son hooked on it.  And I always cook to much so I have a little extra to have the next day.


Do you have a favorite meal that you’d take to a desert island?


Cabbage Patch Soup

For those cold Fall/Winter evenings when you want something warm to hit your tummy Cabbage Patch Soup hits the spot.  I made a pot the other day and it was so good.  I got this recipe from one of my mom’s friends a long time ago.  She got it from the Cabbage Patch Restaurant in Snohmish Washington.  It’s one of my favorites.  I hope you enjoy.
