Low Carb Healthy Lunch with Chicken and Cabbage

Low Carb Lunch: Sautéed Spicy Cabbage with Shredded Chicken

I love our weekly local veggie delivery box beacuse it stops me getting in a rut and eating the same veggies week in, week out! As such, this ensures I get a wide variety of micronutrients which is essential for optimum health and can boost your immune system, and therefore means I eat seasonally, which has both environmental and health benefits.

This week’s box included a huge green cabbage which I wanted to turn into something other than slaw, so I decided on this super quick and easy asian inspired recipe, which is perfect for a low carb lunch or 15 minute dinner.

Low Carb Lunch: Sautéed Spicy Cabbage with Shredded Chicken

(Serves 2)

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 inched ginger, minced
  • 1 large cabbage, shredded
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • Sriracha to taste
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet, and sauté the onions, garlic and ginger until soft. Add the cabbage, and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the cabbage is soft. Add the chicken, tamari and sriracha and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, or until the chicken is warm. Top with sesame seeds and serve. This recipe is perfect for those following my 8 Week Lean and Clean Program.
