Lazy Chicken Cabbage Stir Fry

by May 10, 2018

This is the lazy version of a chicken cabbage stir fry because we used a bag of cole slaw to save time on washing and chopping cabbage. You can shred heads of purple and green cabbage yourself to save money or make a bigger batch.


Ninja Tip: You can save even more time by cooking whole chicken tenderloins instead of cutting up chicken breasts.
