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)


Ingredients:
  • 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


Directions:
  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. :)
