Braised Cabbage with chicken- Tushenaya Kapusta -Тушеная Kапуста с Kурицей

Braised cabbageM

This is a traditional Russian dish- Tushenaya kapusta- Тушеная Kапуста. It’s one of my favorite dishes since childhood. My mom used to make this dish with duck meat, fresh from the farm. I’ve adapted it from mom’s original recipe. 
Easy and delicious, even people who don’t like cabbage I bet they will change their minds. My husband did. 🙂
Servings: 6
Ingredients:

2 chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
Salt and black pepper, to taste
6 cups shredded  cabbage
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, shredded

1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp. Ketchup
1 tsp. sweet Paprika
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1 Tbsp. fresh dill- chopped

Direction:

 In a Dutch oven on high heat sauté onions, garlic, red bell pepper and carrots in olive oil until tender for 3-5 minutes. Add chicken and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add cabbage, bay leaf, ketchup, cayenne pepper, paprika, season with salt and pepper; mix well, reduce heat and let simmer/braise for 25-30 minutes. ( add water if needed so the bottom doesn’t dry out, depends on your cabbage) Add chopped dill and if it’s necessary adjust seasoning. Turn off the heat and serve.

ENJOY!!!

    Great idea using bell pepper! I love tooshonaya kapusta! My toddler also loves it. I wish I’d seen this post sooner, I would have bought some cabbage while I was at the store! Now, I’m craving it too!

    This is an amazing recipe Inessa, I’ve never though of adding peppers in but I bet it gives it a lot of flavor, now I wanna try this soon 🙂 Take care!!!

    This looks so good! I cook a dish like this from my Russian cookbook, I’m going to try yours, the ketchup intrigues me!

    Great Dish! I left out the red bell pepper and used pork instead of chicken. Also, while adding liquid I split between water and chicken or beef stock. Thanks for sharing!
