Everyone in my family (including my extremely picky two year old) loves cooked cabbage. I love cabbage rolls too, but sometimes it's a pain to make them. I came across this recipe on Pinterest for a one pot cabbage casserole and I decided to try it out. I am on a diet, so I tweaked the recipe a little bit to make it more low fat. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
What you will need:
*Two chicken breasts, cooked and shredded. (I put Lowry's on mine.) The original recipe called for ground beef, but I opted for chicken.
* Two cups of water.
*One can of diced tomatoes (or rotel) I used low sodium.
*One can of tomato sauce. (Again, low sodium.)
* One cup of brown rice.
*One onion (diced),
*Three large handfuls of uncooked cabbage. (I just used an entire half a head because my family are all pigs.)
*Salt and Pepper to taste
1: Cook the chicken breasts in a crock pot or boil them until shredded. Season well with whatever kind of spice you like. I used Lowry's.
2: Combine water, tomatoes, sauce, rice, cabbage and onion in a pot. Bring to a boil, then turn down the head and let simmer for at least twenty minutes, covered.
3: Once twenty minutes has passed, uncover, and put in the chicken. Let simmer for 15 minutes.
4: After you have let the chicken simmer with the cabbage, uncover and taste. Some people have different preferences on how cooked you like the cabbage to be. If it is done, take the cheese you prefer and add it to the pot, cover for a few minutes or just long enough for the cheese to melt.
I wanted to share this recipe because it is so easy, quick and decently good for you. Sometime I am so tired I end up fixing something unhealthy and there is really no sense in doing that when I could just as well of thrown this together in the same amount of time.
