Chicken Cabbage Dinner De-“LITE”

I couldn’t figure out how to classify this meal. It is not a soup, not a chili, and not a cabbage roll…It is like all three mixed together and it is delicious!

Cabbage Chicken


Ingredients (serves 6):

1-2 pounds ground chicken or ground turkey
2 large cans diced tomatoes
1 small head cabbage, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp black pepper
½ tsp Italian seasoning
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
(optional): 1 tbsp fresh chopped basil


  1. In a skillet, on medium-high heat, cook the ground chicken (or turkey) until done.
  2. Drain the chicken and combine into a large pot with diced tomatoes (including the juice) and chopped cabbage on medium heat.
  3. Sauté the onion, crushed fresh garlic, red pepper, and mushrooms until just tender – add to the pot.
  4. Add black pepper and Italian seasoning to taste.
  5. Cover and simmer for ~30 minutes.cabbagge chicken
  6. Serve over cooked brown rice or it is delicious on its own as well! …(I usually eat it alone sprinkled with parmesan cheese)
  7. ENJOY!
