Braised Cabbage with Chicken and Apple Sausage

Braised Cabbage with Chicken and Apple Sausage (Serves 1)

I love Chicken and Apple Sausage. I get Aidells’ at Trader Joe’s and Applegate Organics’ at Whole Foods. You can’t go wrong with either one. Heating a couple sausages with stir-fried and chicken broth-braised cabbage makes for a super fast and super tasty meal. I make my own chicken broth, but am pretty sure it is the chicken and apple sausage that makes this meal taste so good. Try it.

Prep Time and Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredient list:

1 green cabbage
1 package of chicken and apple sausage
1 small sweet yellow onion
Chicken broth (Imagine Organic includes no sugar, cane juice, or soy)
Coconut oil
Garlic powder
Black pepper

Directions: Cut cabbage in half. Store half in an air-tight plastic container in the refrigerator for another meal. Chop half a head of cabbage into bite-sized strips. Chop onion into bite-sized pieces. Melt one or two tablespoons of coconut oil in a wok over medium heat. Add one handful of onion to wok and stir fry a few minutes. Save the rest of the onion in an air-tight plastic container in the refrigerator for another meal. Add cabbage and stir until coated with hot oil. Season with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste. I like a nice dusting of each. Stir occasionally for about 5 minutes until cabbage begins to soften. Add 2-3 cups of chicken broth. Chop 2 sausages into bite-sized pieces and stir in with cabbage. Cover and let cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use a slotted spoon to transfer everything to a plate and enjoy!

  1. I had some cabbage and Aidell’s chicken apple sausage in the fridge and started googling to see if there was a simple way to combine those. I stumbled upon this post and put it together for dinner tonight. YUM! Very tasty, thank you!

      Glad you liked it and great to have a runner drop by. I ran a one marathon per month for 14 months in a row back in my running days.

  2. So you only need half a cabbage for this recipe? If you peel the cabbage leaves until you have reduced it’s size by half you then have a perfect small half cabbage left. This will store much better than one which has been cut, and may not even need refrigeration, depending on your ambient temperatures and humidity. Basically we NEVER cut a cabbage here in the Mediterranean, and they last for weeks without using up valuable fridge space.
