Irish Chicken Dish

Feel like eating an Irish inspired dish?  I believe that this is what this dish was.  Inspired by the lovely chiropractic student Autumn who swore that this cabbage dish was a hearty way to get her greens in, I tried it and liked it.  It was good.  It was different.  But good. So thank you Autumn.  Your idea stimulated another post for the masses.

Chicken is such an easy dish to make.  I took two breasts of organic chicken and covered them in a little bit of salt and pepper.  I put them on the grill and cooked them up.  Easy.

The Julianne cabbage was the dish that required a little bit of attention. Well, not really, but here is the situation:

What to get:

  1. You MUST get Ume plum vinegar (no substitutions)
  2. Head of cabbage (organic-duh!)
  3. Olive oil
  4. Water
  5. Butter (the low fat type)
  6. Salt

Autumn’s exact words on the execution:

Get the ume plum vinegar in the Asian section of any grocery store (Walmart or Whole Foods has it).

Put 4 tbsp of olive oil into a huge pot.  Break up the cabbage leaves into the pot after thoroughly rinsing.  Put some water into the potto flash steam.  Satue the cabbage in oil and water.  Finish with the vinegar after the cabbage leaves appear wilted.  Add 2 tbsp of butter and salt to the mix and stir.  Coverthe pot with the lid and let cook another minute or so.  The total time is maybe 8 minutes on a moderate flame-nothing that will burn the pot if you know what that means. (ok, that is JZ’s words, not Autumn’s.  She never told me how long and what flame so I guessed and I succeeded).  Use your brain.  You can do it.  It ain’t rocket science! LOL.
