How To Make chicken breasts with spiced pickled cabbage

  • 1
    Chicken: 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.
