Pan-Roasted Chicken, Cabbage, and Potatoes (and a New Cookbook!)

Pan-Roasted Chicken Cabbage and Potatoes

I got my pin and traction device off this week, woohoo! Below is me showing my hand in all it’s glory right after the procedure. This physical therapy thing is sure taking up most of each day, though. Every hour I get the reminder alarm to do my therapy exercises, and depending on what round I’m doing, I look up and I only have a half hour before the next round. (I’m on short-term leave from work for a few weeks.) That sure doesn’t leave a lot of time for cooking and picture taking. But I managed to squeeze this dinner in between the “torture” last night.

Traction and Pin Off

Traction and Pin Off

I saw this recipe on the Food52 website and figured it was quick and easy enough to pull off. Both me and my husband fell in love with the sauce! It’s the perfect combination of spicy/tangy/slightly sweet which we both figured would be PERFECT on grilled salmon too!

After eating what we could of it, I thought the leftovers would make a really good Asian Noodle Soup, which I plan on doing sometime this weekend (sans the potatoes). It’s funny, after eating I was perusing the chicken-scratch changes I had made to the original printed recipe, I noticed I missed an ingredient in the sauce! I’m glad I did, as I think it would have been a completely different profile as toasted sesame oil has a very strong taste.

Oh! And I also received a new cookbook in the mail, along with a packet of homemade spice! My dear friend and fellow blogger Krystina at Kouzanas kitchen published a cookbook, filled with amazing recipes inspired by her grandparents’ village in Mani, Greece. I can’t wait to use the spice in a dish (Organic Santorini Sunset Seasoning) and cook some great Greek food from the book. You can find her blog, Facebook page, and Etsy shop in the links below.

Now on to the recipe!

Pan-Roasted Chicken, Cabbage, and Potatoes

1 teaspoon grapeseed oil, for greasing
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 cup grapeseed oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Sriracha
4 pieces bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts or thighs
Red baby potatoes, halved
Ground black pepper and salt, to taste
1/2 head small cabbage

Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Rub a teaspoon of grapeseed (or other neutral) oil to coat a rimmed sheet pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together the grapeseed oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and Sriracha. Place the chicken and potatoes in a gallon zip-lock bag. Season with salt and pepper. Pour 1/4 cup of the sauce over the chicken and shake bag around to coat. Let marinate while the oven preheats.

Cut the cabbage in half through the core. Repeat this process until you are left with wedges 1-inch wide. Place the wedges in a large bowl, season salt and pepper, and toss with the remaining sauce. Pour the bag of chicken and potatoes, including juices, on to the sheet pan and spread out in one layer. Roast for 10 minutes.

Nestled Cabbage

Nestled Cabbage

Remove pan from oven, and nestle cabbage wedges all around the pieces, tucking it under in some places. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes more or until chicken is golden and cooked through. Remove pan from oven, transfer chicken to a platter to rest. Return cabbage and potatoes to the oven to roast for 5 to 10 more minutes until potatoes are done.

    Woot — No more hardware!!! Congrats, Kathryn! I know it’s still a hard road, but the removal of the hardware is visible progress, and reward for the work you’ve already done.
    The chicken is impressive. What a perfect golden color. It looks delicious. Mega hugs!

        Ha! I agree. I had little milestones with mine. I called them “small victories.” (Fortunately I didn’t have exterior hardware. But I had a badly broken wrist, with hardware inside and a dozen holes drilled into my bones for screws to secure all the metal. Then “frozen shoulder” set in immediately — the doctor said from the trauma, not from immobility.) So my first milestone was being able to lift my arm high enough to even partially shave that armpit! The armpit jungle! The big victory was when I could finally reach behind to hook my bra. LOL. Hang in there.

        Holy cow that must have been some accident! Glad you are all better now! Yes, being able to shave that one armpit was glorious, lol! xoxo

      Thank you! I might try adding maybe 1/4 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil next time (the ingredient I forgot) but the one tablespoon it called for I think would have overpowered everything else. Thanks for commenting!

    Nice job KR! As you may recall I did a giveaway of Krystina’s cookbook last year-its a great cookbook-enjoy it I know you will. I am 50 % Greek so I am just a wee bit partial to Greek Foods-LOL. The other 50% is Italian so I love that food too. Oh NO I just love food! LOL woo-hoo xoxoxo ccc

    I know how happy you are to have the hardware off. Years ago, after a cooking mishap, my left hand looked like a sock puppet for months.

    This looks good, Kathryn. Tossing the main ingredients before putting them in the pan is something I wouldn’t have considered. A great idea. Time to put cabbage on the shopping list!

    It’s wonderful to hear that the pin and traction device are gone. I know that there’s still a lot of hard work ahead – but you’re on the home stretch now. I hope that your hand is as good as new very soon.

    Glad you’re continuing to heal – for my age I am happy that I have never had an accident (knock on wood) except for a minor sprain. The chicken dish looks really good (I would have to remove the skin but I’m sure it would still taste delicious). I will have to look into the Greek cookbook.

    This is an interesting combo. Never thought of roasting cabbage with chicken. Always boiled or stewed it with chicken. Good to hear you’re healing along. Keep up the spirit!

        That sounds great! I learned to eat cabbage by trying it raw, believe it or not – it’s crunchy and much sweeter and when it’s not cooked you don’t get that taste that you do from brassica family…
