Spicy Chicken with Cabbage, Spinach, and Carrot
Are you tired of eating your Sunday dinner leftovers? Here's one of my favorites dish, Spicy Chicken with Cabbage, Spinach, and Carrot.
The chicken takes about one hour to marinate if you did not prepare it the night before, and only uses one skillet. The poultry is slowly cooked with the marinade, add a couple of tablespoons of Poultry Seasoning and a teaspoon of Hot and Spicy Mango with Herbs Blend and your vegetables, and let all the flavors come together.
Start this recipe the night before to save time. Clean the chicken, add your condiments and spices. Place the prepared chicken in the refrigerator until the next day. When ready, make sure that the chicken is at room temperature before cooking.
The chicken is cooked first in its marinade and browned a bit in the pan. Finish off with more fresh herbs, add fresh vegetables and fresh tomatoes and you have a meal to serve with your preferred rice.
Cabbage, spinach, and carrot are the vegetables of choice because their flavors enhance the chicken. I usually use fresh tomatoes by choice instead of tomato paste for freshness.
The recipe takes hardly any special prep time. The only work is cleaning the chicken well and chopping the vegetables.
The spicy taste comes from the Hot and Spicy Mango with Herbs Blend, a condiment I created to use instead of the traditional hot sauce or hot pepper. The chicken is hot and spicy because of the amount of sauce used. You can add 1/4 teaspoon instead of 1 teaspoon.
Bonus! You can use any other types of vegetables you wish. But be mindful of cooking time. Cabbage, spinach, and carrot don't take long to cook. Just enough for the spicy chicken to cook!
By the way, white rice is one of the favorite side dishes to serve this meat dish. The rice soaks up the sauce of the chicken and the veggies very well. No need for beans sauce. You can also serve it with boiled root vegetables.
A complete meal for any weeknight when you want a spicy and perfect meal.
