How to Cook Curry Chicken & Cabbage

In the past cooking this recipe I would start cooking my chicken like I would cook a pot of curry chicken and then add the cabbage on top. Toss a few times then serve but I realized I wasn’t getting the full flavor until I tried it this way: 

First, you want to wash and clean your chicken. Season the chicken and set aside. The trick is to stir fry the chicken, then remove from heat. Add the cabbage in the same pot and allow to cook for a few minutes. 

Add the stir-fried chicken to the cabbage and combine everything all together. Allow to cook for a few more minutes then serve with your desired sides. 

Serving Suggestions 

For many Caribbean households, a recipe such as this is best served with boiled food such as:
