Time: About 25 minutes

Take everything out and then start cooking

So I’m not much a measurer… I’ll do my best for y’all though

What you need:

2 -4 chicken breasts, pounded thin

1 handful of fresh basil (I have a bail plant I rip it off of, you can get one at the grocery store)- rough chopped

4-6 campari tomatoes (you can use roma too, but the camparis really make it special)- quartered

1 small handful of pitted kalamata olives- chopped

2-4 TBS of crumbled feta, 1 for each chicken breast

2 Sliced red peppers

1/2 large yellow onion, rough chopped

6 cloves garlic smashed and chopped

1/2 cabbage sliced

1 cup of chicken broth

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar ( I used a fig balsamic but you can use what you like)

Seasoning: Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, nutmeg

Some grape seed oil (or olive, I like grape seed ’cause it can be cooked at high temps and is without flavor).

Step 1: Pull everything you’ll need out of the fridge

Step 2: Put one sautee pan and one deeper pan (not sure what it’s called, see picture) on the stove. Both on medium high heat

Step 3: Add some oil both plans

Step 4: Split the onions between the pans

Step 5: Add 3-4 pinches of cayenne to the deep pan and a few pinches of salt

Step 6: Sprinkle salt, pepper, cayenne and nutmeg on both sides of the chicken (wash your hands)

Step 7: When the onions are brown add the red peppers and 1/2 garlic to the sautee pan and the cabbage and 1/2 garlic to the deep pan

Double Duty

Step 6: Add chicken stock to the deep pan and cover.

Step 7: When the peppers are brown pour them into a bowl

Step 8: Add a little oil and the chicken to the sautee pan

Step 9: When chicken is brown on one side (5 minutes or so) flip it. Let is sit 3 minutes

Step 10: Cabbage should be done, remove from the heat and take the lid off

Step 11: Dump peppers/onions , basil tomatoes and olives on the chicken

Step 12: Pour on balsamic.

Let it sit for 3-4 more minutes until chicken is cooked through. Plate, sprinkle with feta and serve.
