Prep. Time15 min
Ingredients
4 uncooked chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 small or 1/2 large onion, chopped
2 - 3 cloves chopped garlic (optional)
4 - 6 cups shredded cabbage
1/2 stick butter
1/2 teas dried sage
1/2 teas dried oregano
1 and 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Directions
Step: 1Melt butter and add onions, garlic, chicken and herbs, cook until onions and garlic are softened and chicken is partially cooked.

Add shredded cabbage and cover. Cook on medium high heat for 5 - 10 minutes, until cabbage is softened. Stir to combine with chicken mixture, and continue to cook on medium high heat uncovered until most of the water from the cabbage has evaporated. This is important to keep your cheese sauce from being watery.

Add cream and cheese, stirring to incorporate. Cover and lower heat to medium low. Cook for 5 - 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted. Uncover and simmer a few minutes more to thicken the sauce, if necessary.

I like to serve this with garlic toast (made from Atkins bread) to sop up the sauce.

Optional extras:
Sometimes I add a few peas and chopped red peppers for color and added flavor.

Other cheeses work well too, such as Monterey Jack or parmesan. If I use parmesan, I use rosemary with the sage instead of oregano.
