My sister and I are cooking for the ZWT6 this weekend, we served this tonight for our husband's and they both liked the chicken legs with the cheese and cabbage. They both grew up with Swedish cooking, so they enjoyed this dish.

This was a wonderful and easy recipe, so yummy! Made it for guests (parents and sister) and my mom actually requested the recipe. Usually I am the one getting recipes from her! My husband even emailed me the next day just to tell me how good the leftovers were. I used thighs instead of legs, but other then that followed the recipe to the T. Thank you so much for posting!

Super tasty! I made this with 3 lbs of skinless chicken thighs and followed the recipe just as written. I LOVED the flavor of the caraway seeds! I think that you could easily sub Swiss cheese for the mozzarella. I also think any cut of chicken pieces would work. This is a wonderful, tasty, yet quite inexpensive meal. Thanx so much for sharing!
