How to Make Chicken Breasts with Spiced Pickled Cabbage


  • 1Chicken:
    Heat a cast iron frying pan, with a tablespoon of olive oil, over medium heat.

    Add the chicken breasts, skin side down. Cook for about 3 minutes until the breasts are seared and can easily be released from the pan. Turn them over and cook for a few minutes more.

    Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

    Combine all of the ingredients for the rub in a small bowl.

    Season the breasts with the rub and transfer to the oven to finish the cooking process; about another 30 – 40 minutes or until the juices run clear.

    Remove from the oven and let rest a few minutes before slicing.

    Spiced Pickled Cabbage:
    Prepare the cabbage by removing the outer leaves and the hard heart.
    Slice the cabbage as thin as possible.

    Place the cabbage, ginger, sugar, bay leaves and vinegars in a heavy sauce pot.

    Cook the cabbage, covered, on a low heat until the cabbage is tender.

    Serve the cabbage with the chicken.
