A simple stir fry chicken with cabbage dish over plain white rice that is good enough for a simple meal at home.
There is only 2 main steps to cook this dish.  First, is to pan fry marinated boneless chicken pieces until slightly crispy and brown.  Second, is to fry the cabbage with the required seasoning.  Toss and mix both ingredients.  Dish up to serve with a plate of rice or serve separately.
Hmmm...., tasty, delicious, homey Chinese style chicken and vegetable dish.
