    This sounds like a pretty delicious recipe to be honest with you. I have been very much loving oriental cuisine for a long time and I am more than certain this would be delectable.

    Chicken is one of my favourite things to eat seeing that I eat it everyday and, well, cabbage is something I grew up eating with my mom!

    Thanks for a great recipe.

    Thanks for this amazing recipe. I need something for dinner on Sunday (the in-laws are coming over) so I need to show them what I can really do. I’m not the best cook but do know more than the basics, however, I think this will be a great dish overall. I’m going to get all the ingredients ready. Thanks for all the help brother 🙂
