Cabbage and Chicken Stir Fry

Chicken and cabbage stir-fry with carrots is a quick and easy weeknight meal. Boneless chicken cooks up quickly and absorbs all the flavors from the onions, spices, herbs, and tomato paste.

Chicken and cabbage recipe

This one-pan stir fry is perfect for busy weeknights! It’s healthy, delicious, and takes just minutes to make. The chicken and cabbage are simmered in broth with fresh onions, garlic, herbs, paprika, and tomato paste for a flavorful and satisfying dish. Enjoy it as a rice bowl, with a side of noodles, or on its own for a low-carb meal.

What is the best variety of cabbage to use for stir fry?

Most cabbage varieties will work for this recipe, but Napa and Savoy are a bit delicate and may not hold up as well to cooking. Green and white cabbage are our favorites because they become sweet and tender as they cook, while still retaining a nice crispness. Red cabbage will also work in a pinch, but keep in mind that its beautiful purple color may stain the rest of the dish.
