  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1 brown onion,finely chopped
  • 3 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 150g chorizo, sliced 1cm thick
  • 1 tsp dried mix herbs
  • 250 ml chicken stock OR enough to cover the chicken
  • 50g butter
  • 150g cabbage, shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish: dried parsley
  1. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large saucepan with cooking oil and brown the chicken until golden all over. Remove chicken from the saucepan and drain off excess oil. 
  3. Using the same saucepan, add 40g butter and sweat the onions, garlic and sliced chorizo. Cook gently for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Then, add in dried mixed herbs, combine well and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.
  4. Return browned chicken pieces in to the saucepan and pour in chicken stock until enough to cover the chicken. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, melt 10g butter in pan  or saucepan, add in shredded cabbage, lightly stir fry the cabbage and season with salt and pepper.

  6. By this time, the chicken and chorizo mixture should be done. Place the chicken and chorizo mixture on the cabbage and sprinkle with dried parsley.
