Chicken Cabbage Stir Fry


  • 2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 small cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked rice or noodles for serving


  1. Prepare Ingredients: Begin by thinly slicing the chicken breasts, cabbage, onion, and bell pepper (if using). Mince the garlic and ginger.
  2. Marinate Chicken: In a bowl, combine the sliced chicken with soy sauce, sesame oil, and minced ginger. Let it marinate for about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Heat the Pan: Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  4. Sauté Vegetables: Add minced garlic to the hot oil and stir-fry for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Then, add sliced onion and bell pepper (if using). Cook for another 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.
  5. Add Chicken: Add the marinated chicken slices to the skillet. Stir-fry the chicken until it’s cooked through and no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Incorporate Cabbage: Once the chicken is cooked, add the thinly sliced cabbage to the skillet. Toss everything together and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until the cabbage is wilted but still slightly crisp.
  7. Seasoning: Pour oyster sauce over the chicken and cabbage mixture. Stir well to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  8. Serve: Once everything is cooked and well combined, remove the skillet from heat. Serve the Chicken Cabbage Stir Fry hot over cooked rice or noodles.
