- 1. Prepare ingredients as listed above.
- 2. Heat 1 TBS broth in a stainless steel wok or large skillet. Healthy Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until translucent. Add garlic and ginger and continue to sauté for another minute.
- 3. Add chicken pieces and cook for a couple of minutes. Add turmeric, coriander, and mix with chicken. Add kale. Sauté for another couple of minutes, stirring constantly.
- 4. Add ½ cup broth and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat and simmer over low heat covered for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- 5. Add cabbage, diced tomatoes, and vinegar and simmer for another 4 minutes. Remove from heat, toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- 6. Serve sprinkled with minced scallion tops and sesame seeds.
- 7. Healthy Cooking Tip: Make sure the cabbage does not cook more than about 4 minutes. If it cooks beyond that it will start releasing liquid and dilute the flavor of your dish. By slicing it thin, it allows it to cook in a short amount of time, creating a fresh tasting dish with a lot of flavor.
