How to make Cabbage Sauteed with Chicken

Step 1: On medium-high heat, warm a large saute pan. Add the olive oil followed by the chicken and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes until brown.

Step 2: In the meantime, into thin strips, slice the cabbage-like what you would do for coleslaw. To the chicken, add the paprika and tomato paste. Stir well and cook for 5 minutes more.

Step 3: Now, add the cabbage and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

Step 4: To the pan, add the shredded carrots, chicken stock, and season with salt & pepper. Stir to combine the ingredients and cook for an additional 40 minutes while stirring often until all the liquid is gone, uncovered.

Step 5: if desired, add a tbsp hot sauce. Before serving, garnish with some fresh parsley. Enjoy!
