This is the time of the year when cranberries are so readily available. It’s the perfect time to put them to good use with these cabbage wraps with cranberries and chicken. These wraps are light, tasty and one of my favorite 30 minute meals. (or less!)
Even though I love these wraps, for the times when you want to have a meal with a tortilla and keep the calories down, be sure to check out my taco wraps. They are amazing and only 279 calories each.
Lets make these cabbage wraps.
It is getting closer to Chinese new year (Jan 31 this year) so I am always looking for new and unusual Chinese themed recipes. This wrap features the tangy tartness of cranberries, mixed with fresh rotisserie chicken, all wrapped up in a large cabbage leaf to help save on calories.
The apples and cranberries compliment each other well and go perfectly with the chopped chicken.
The recipe is easy to do and so delicious. It makes a healthy week day meal and is on the table in 30 minutes.
What a great choice for a Chinese New Year celebration!
- 8 large cabbage leaves, washed
