It is unbelievably easy, very good for you, diet-friendly...and delicious! The chicken literally melts in your mouth. It's addictive too :)
- 400 g chicken thighs (or any other part you prefer)
- 1 (14 ounce) can chopped tomatoes
- 1⁄2 head cabbage, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1 large onion
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 tablespoons ketchup (optional)
- 1 tablespoon chicken stock
- Dump everything in a large pan.
- Cook for about an hour or so, if too dry add a little water.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. That's it!
This was simple and fabulous! Ended up using 500g of chicken thigh fillets, added some tomato paste and some dried thyme and rosemary - apart from that, stuck to the recipe and managed to get 7 servings out of it. Served it with mashed swede and cauliflower but it would work perfectly with simple mashed potato or just with some nice bread - delicious and definitely a keeper for my recipe book - thanks for posting!
Made this today and it was so good and simple. As a matter of fact, so simple that I wasn't sure how it would be. I made it in the crock pot, cooked on low for 4 hours and it was great, served with warm, crusty french bread and a glass of wine. What could be better on this cold fall morning. I didn't change anything (other than the crock pot). Next time I might add some pototoes, but you can't ask for a better recipe, delicious, easy, and fast. I'll be making this often. Thanks Cinnamonised.
We're giving this five stars, because for a weeknight, healthy, non-fancy family meal, it would be hard to beat. I wasn't sure about the "1 tbsp chicken stock", since I didn't think a single tablespoonful would add much flavour, so I used a vegetable bouillon liquid instead. The cabbage shrank down and released its juices into the pan. Very simple to cook, and very pleasant to eat (in a plain, soothing sort of way). We served it with mashed potatoes.
