This quick and easy chicken cabbage stir-fry is a great midweek dinner meal. It’s healthy, nutritious, gluten-free, paleo, low-carb and Whole30-friendly.
I know how much you guys love quick and easy meals, so today I am sharing my snappy chicken cabbage stir-fry recipe. I often make this with my pre-made stir-fry sauce, which saves me even more time, but this recipe will list all the ingredients you need to whip this up in less than 20 minutes.
This is an energising protein-rich meal full of B-vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that have many health benefits. Being low in carbohydrates (16 grams per serve) and high in dietary fibre (5-6 grams), this is a great dish for those trying to lose weight or control their blood sugar levels. You will be getting lots of protein from the chicken, so this is a fantastic post-workout meal as well.
If you’d like to up the mineral content, you could add some sesame seeds (for calcium), pumpkin seeds (for zinc) or Brazil nuts (for selenium) and extra leafy greens can boost the iron levels.

CHICKEN CABBAGE STIR-FRY INGREDIENTS
In this recipe, I am using coconut aminos in the stir-fry sauce, which is a paleo and Whole30-friendly version of soy sauce made from coconut sap. Learn more about coconut aminos here. You can usually find this sauce online or at your local health food store, or you can use Tamari wheat-free, gluten-free soy sauce.
Napa cabbage is also known as Chinese cabbage or wombok. Its leaves are lighter and more tender than regular cabbage, so it cooks quickly and is lovely raw in salads. It has a milder, sweeter and less peppery flavour compared to regular white cabbage.
You can often find it in the supermarkets and definitely at an Asian grocer, but regular white cabbage is absolutely fine to use as well. I like to buy a whole Napa cabbage and use up the green, outer leaves in an Asian salad and the thicker, whiter parts in a stir-fry.
You can throw in other vegetables like zucchini, cauliflower or other Asian greens and of course, chicken can be subbed with other meat or plant-based protein of choice. Enjoy and let me know in the comments if you liked it!
