Need a comfort food meal in about 20 minutes?  We threw Cheesy Chicken and Cabbage skillet together last night before heading out the door for a meeting. YUMMY!

It's similar to Egg Roll in a Bowl which is low carb and full of good fats but this recipe is a low fat and low carb meal.  We usually eat it as an low fat meal(for THM peeps) with some healthy low glycemic carbs like brown rice and applesauce. 

So come on into my kitchen and check out this fast and filling Cheesy Chicken and Cabbage recipe.  Keep the ingredients on hand for "those" nights when you have no time but need some comfort food!

 

Chicken in the Freezer

To make fast meals super easy, I keep chicken in a variety of forms in my freezer. Buying protein, specifically chicken in this case, when it is on sale is the best way for me to have food on had for any need. I like to buy chicken and beef from Zaycon because it comes in bulk which is great for doing freezer meals. Then I don't need to watch the grocery ads each week.(affiliate link)

Right now I have whole chicken breasts frozen plus some that have been diced, cooked and shredded.  We also meals like sugar free BBQ chicken, chicken and zoodles, lemon chicken and a few more ready to thaw to pop in the oven or the crockpot! 

Chicken in the freezer takes meal time from being a head ache to being a breeze.

The chicken for this recipe was boiled ahead of time and frozen.  But you definitely can do the recipe from fresh chicken.  Boil the chicken breasts or stick them in the oven.  Either works!

THM followers if you want an easy E meal then serve over brown rice.  We love green beans, salad and apple sauce to go with this main dish!
