Smothered Chinese Chicken and Cabbage – A delicious and hearty main dish recipe for your family’s next at-home Chinese night.
So do you guys make your own Chinese food at home? If not, you totally should! It is really easy. This Smothered Chinese Chicken and Cabbage is a great main dish recipe for your next dinner! Now I don’t get all fancy and buy fancy Chinese cabbage or things like sesame oil. I just know I probably wouldn’t get my use out of it.
I do, however, love a good Chinese night at home. I adore fried rice, lo mein, and EGG ROLLS…gosh how I love egg rolls! So when I make this Smothered Chinese Chicken and Cabbage, I usually make a few of those sides with it.
Tips for Smothered Chinese Chicken and Cabbage:
- I have found the key to success with Chinese food is to have everything pre-chopped before you start cooking because it cooks up so fast.
- While this dish is simmering away, you can whip up some fried rice and bake some egg rolls and dinner is done!
- You can also use boneless chicken thighs if your family prefers that.
This Smothered Chicken and Cabbage is so delicious!! We love it, and you will too!
