Use What's in the Fridge by Steve Loh 08.14.2000: 
Braised Chicken with Cabbage 
|
intro  recipe

One disclaimer: Never mind the picture. This dish IS tasty. Itís hard to make stewed and braised things look good in photos. 

ingredients
3-6 frozen boneless/skinless chicken pieces (no need to defrost)
1/2 large onion (or 1 small/med), chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed-minced
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1/4 Cup Red Wine (or other liquid)
1/4 jar Spaghetti sauce (or any other tomato product)
1 head cabbage, sliced
Salt/pepper

serves: 2-4

1. Put a large frypan on high heat. When hot, add oil. Put as many chicken pieces in the pan as will comfortably fit in the bottom without crowding. Add onion and garlic (in the open spaces), and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 min., stirring the onions occasionally, until the bottom of the chicken is lightly browned.
2. Add the spaghetti sauce and wine and stir. Place sliced cabbage over the top of the whole thing, as much as will fit. Cabbage cooks down, so donít worry about it being too much. Add a few sprinkles of salt and pepper over the cabbage.
3. Cover and turn heat down to medium/low.
4. Watch a rerun of "Friends." (20 min. or so)
5.  Eat.
