Just for kids! - Cabbage wrap chicken minis

Here's a simple recipe to share that will make both mummy and kid happy!

Cabbage wrap chicken minis (makes 1 mini)

  • 1 cabbage leaf (depending on the size of your cabbage, you may only need half a leaf for one of these minis)
  • 1 thumb-length piece of chicken fillet (you may mince this but I didn't)
Marinate chicken with (just a dash/pinch of each seasoning!):
  • oyster sauce
  • Lee Kum Kee chicken marinade
  • ground black pepper
  • sugar (optional)
  • sesame oil

  1. Marinate chicken fillet for at least an hour.
  2. Wash and blanch cabbage leaf in boiling stock or water to make it easier to wrap the chicken (about 5 minutes)
  3. Spread cabbage leaf out on a plate and place chicken fillet on it. Wrap the chicken fillet up as you would with a springroll.
  4. Place the wrapped chicken on a plate and steam it for 10minutes.
  5. Optional: Pour the 'juice' that is in the plate after the steaming into a small saucepan (top up with more stock if necessary), add cornflour solution (mixture of cornflour and water) to thicken into a gravy. Dish gravy over the wrap.
  6. Serve.

This is how it looks prior to steaming

And the verdict!:

My little boy had one of these too (he's almost 1!) - but I had to cut the wrap into really small pieces for him to handle.

Omit all the seasonings for children under 1 year old. The chicken and cabbage are naturally sweet so there is no need to add seasoning. :)
