I’ve been trying to be a little better with my eating…well, not really. I’ve just been trying to balance out a few of the “bad” meals with a few good meals. I’m always looking for things that aren’t loaded with carbs. As a diabetic carbs are something I’m suppose to limit.
I saw a recipe for Cabbage Sauteed with Chicken and thought to give it a try…only problem, Hubby does not like cabbage. There are very few things he doesn’t like but cabbage happens to be one he doesn’t.
Lucky for me I have a tribe of little ones that eat lunch at my house everyday. Being I am part of the “food program”, one of the requirements is that I try new foods occasionally. Well sauteed cabbage is something I don’t think my childcare kids eat at home on a regular basis so I thought I’d try it with the kids.
Here’s the recipe.
Follow this link. It came from a site called Cooktoria.
I did a few changes to the recipe being I was serving it to the kids…1st change-I added more chicken. Doing the math with serving sizes and what I’m required to feed the kids, there didn’t seem to be enough chicken in the recipe. Change 2-I cut down the amount of paprika. Typically my kids don’t like spice so I cut it down a bit. Change 3-I didn’t have tomatoes but did have whole canned tomatoes. I just substituted them.
If I was making it for my family I think I’d try out the full dose of paprika and I’d add an onion.
So did the childcare kids like it…the answer…YES! I was actually surprised that they ate it as well as they did. I’ll serve it again for sure. It makes a pretty large batch so if there’s just two of you a half or even 1/4 of a batch would likely be enough depending on the size of your cabbage.
