myFresha-licious: Chicken & Cabbage Soup (Nilagang Manok)

Chicken & Cabbage Soup (Nilagang Manok)

Have you ever tried throwing any ingredients you see in the kitchen in a pot and just boil it until they’re cook?  That’s what I have for my packed lunch today.  I cooked chicken and cabbage soup last night for today’s lunch.  We only have chicken, pork, ground beef, different varieties of frozen fishes in the fridge and a cabbage.  And the only acceptable match I can find for my cabbage is chicken BECAUSE I am cutting down on pork 🙁

So I just placed some chicken thighs and ½ head of the cabbage, some garlic and onion, then water and viola I have my chicken & cabbage soup (nilagang manok in Filipino) and it is tasty despite putting a very little amount of salt.
