  • 1 pound Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast chopped into large pieces to cook faster
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Celery Ribs chopped
  • 1 medium Sweet Onion diced
  • 1 Green Pepper chopped
  • 2 medium Carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 medium Head Cabbage chopped
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas no need to thaw
  • 14 oz Marinara Sauce one can
  • 6 cups Chicken or Vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Pepper
  • Minced fresh parsley optional


  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven or a soup pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add chicken and cook until golden brown and no longer pink in the inside, about 10-12 minutes. Set aside on a chopping board and shred it with 2 forks.
  • To the same pot add celery, carrots, green peppers, onions, and stir fry for about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in shredded chicken, cabbage, marinara sauce, and chicken stock. Stir well and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until cabbage is tender.
  • Add in frozen peas, garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper, mix until well combined. Allow it to simmer for a few minutes more, just until peas are done.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley, then pour into warm bowls and serve.


  • Use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder
  • Frozen carrots work
  • Instead of marinara use tomato sauce, one tablespoon of Italian seasoning, and one tablespoon of basil.
  • Fresh parsley is optional if you don't have any.
  • Serving size one cup
  • You may use Rotisserie chicken breast to cut down on cook time.
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to eat. You can freeze for up to 3 months.
