(recipe serving size – 2-3 people)

For the honey basil glaze:

3 tb honey

1 tb basil grapeseed oil

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/8 tsp kosher salt

Mix the ingredients in a jar and seal with a lid.

For the chicken and cabbage:

4 chicken thighs

1 cup white wine

1/2 head of cabbage, chopped

1 tb basil grapeseed oil

8 basil leaves, coarsely chopped

1 tsp kosher salt plus 1/2 tsp for cabbage

1/2 tsp cracked black pepper plus 1/4 for cabbage

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Coat the chicken in the oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. In an oven-safe pan over medium to medium-high heat, sear the chicken on each side for 3 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside. Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the cabbage to the chicken drippings along with the additional salt and pepper and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the crushed red pepper flakes and fresh basil. Sauté for another minute. Add the wine and return the chicken to the pan. Simmer for 3 minutes.

Drizzle 1 tb of the honey basil glaze on the chicken and place the entire pan in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes uncovered. Drizzle the rest of the honey basil glaze on the chicken and cabbage and bake for another 10 minutes.

Serve while warm.
