Chicken Cabbage Stir Fry

I love a good weeknight stir fry! It’s a simple and delicious meal that you can throw together quickly and switch around each time you make it. I had a bunch of produce that I wanted to use so I made this using cabbage as the base and it was DELISH! Cabbage was one of those things growing up that my mom would always feed us and I never really loved it. I guess she gave it to me enough to now I loveee it. I think she always made hers by steaming it, some spices, and whatever else that made it somewhat tasty haha

Anyways, this dish makes a bunch so it’s perfect for leftovers or even prepping for the week! You know that I love meals that I can use in a variety of ways so this is definitely one of those. Another great way is to get the big butter lettuce leaves and fill them up with this mixture as a wrap of sorts.

It’s important for me to find meals that fuel me and don’t require a ton of time to prep. If you’re wanting to simplify your meals, this is definitely a great option. Along with many others that I’ve shared. I hope you love it!
