If you love easy delicious meals that come together in one pan – you are currently in the right spot. My entire family loved this dish and I loved making it. It’s gluten free and has the protein and veggies come together in one pan for easy clean up.

If you don’t have green cabbage, you can use red/purple cabbage but the end result of color will change. You can also use chicken breasts instead of thighs if that’s what you have.
