Chicken and Cabbage Stir Fry

Super duper easy alert!  I saw this recipe on Just a Pinch and was so intrigued.  It is not only light but also low carb.  So if you’re watching out for that, then this dish could right up your alley.  It has a great Asian flavor without being over salty or overly sweet like so many home Asian recipes tend to be.

There is great crunch from the veggies and the chicken is tender.  The recipe is also very flexible.  You could sub in whatever veggies you have that you prefer.  Don’t like bell peppers?  Use carrots.  You like both peppers and carrots?  Use both.  You can really mix and match this one up however you like!

3 chicken breast halves
1 t vegetable oil

1/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 c water

Stir sauce into chicken/cabbage mixture.
