Cabbage and Chicken Breast Steamed in the Microwave

Cabbage and Chicken Breast Steamed in the Microwave

This is a recipe from my microwave cooking series. The cabbage soaked in meat juices is exquisite! It's a simple dish seasoned only with salt and garlic.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

1 head
Chicken breast
Natural salt (or sea salt/rock salt)
1/2 tablespoon
Garlic (finely chopped)
2 small pieces


1. Shred the lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place on a heatproof plate. *You can use a silicon steamer with a lid.
2. Coat the chicken evenly in the grated garlic and salt.
3. Loosely wrap with plastic wrap and microwave for 10 minutes.
4. Remove from the microwave. The wrap will be stuck to the meat. Done.
5. Cut the meat with scissors and serve. It's good when the cabbage has wilted.

Story Behind this Recipe

I came up with this recipe because I wanted to see if I could create a juicy texture with cheap and healthy chicken breast.

The seasonings are simple, but the umami flavour of the lettuce really stands out, and makes this dish irresistible.
