Make Ahead Meals – Easy Cabbage and Chicken

Still recovering from all of the holiday food?  Need to make some meals for next week ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about it?  This recipe is quick, easy, inexpensive, and tastes great, even as leftovers.

You will need:

Boneless skinless chicken thighs

A smallish head of cabbage

Chicken broth


Fat of choice



Chop the cabbage and onion.  Set aside.

Heat your fat of choice in the skillet.  Add the chicken thighs and brown on each side.  Remove from skillet and set aside.  Add the cabbage and onion and sauté until the cabbage begins to wilt.  Season with thyme.  Let cook for a minute, and then add enough chicken broth to cover the bottom of the skillet with about half an inch of broth.  Settle chicken thighs on top, cover, and let cook until chicken thighs are done.  Season with pepper.

  1. Cabbage soup is on my menu for the day – instead of chicken going for chorizo cabbage soup…spicy and full of vegetables!
