Cheater Chinese Chicken


  • boneless skinless chicken breast (I'm sure thighs would work well too) - cooked and cut into bite-size chunks
  • onion - chopped
  • broccoli any veggies you have on hand!
  • garlic - minced to taste - I used one clove
  • Chinese cabbage Napa or your preference
  • Sauce I used the above pictured, but you could use your fave
  • Olive Oil
  • toasted sesame seeds optional
  • green onions for serving


  • Place a little olive oil in your skillet. Heat on medium heat.
  • Add onion to pan and saute until translucent.
  • Add garlic & broccoli. Give it a good stir.
  • Add cooked chicken and sauce. Bring to a simmer.
  • When sauce begins to thicken, add Chinese cabbage - go ahead and fill the pan, b/c the cabbage will wilt and reduce in size (a lot!)
  • Carefully mix cabbage into the sauce/chicken/veggies and your done! It only takes a few minutes for the cabbage to begin to wilt, and I like mine to still have a little crunch to it.
  • Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
  • Serve over brown rice (or white, or fried, or noodles....)
