Chicken Breast Steaks and Spicy Cabbage

Breaded chicken breast steaks with spicy cabbage and garlic mushrooms

It is very unlike me to buy something like these ready for the oven breaded chicken steaks. I usually only buy basic ingredients which I then craft in to a finished meal. In this instance, I happened to notice the steaks on offer for just a few pence in my local supermarket as they had reached their sell by date so I decided to give them a try and see what I could come up with in the form of simple but tasty accompaniments.

Chicken breast steaks ready for baking

Ingredients (Serves 1)

2 breaded chicken breast steaks
2 or 3 Savoy cabbage leaves
1 medium red chilli
1/2 small onion
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
8 to 10 small button muchrooms
1 large garlic clove
Generous pinch dried sage

Savoy cabbage leaves, onion and red chilli


The pack in which these breaded chicken steaks came instructed that they had to be baked in the oven, preheated to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6, for 16 to 18 minutes. Getting the steaks on is therefore the first task.

Starting to saute cabbage, onion and chilli

Cut the tough central core from each cabbage leaf before rolling and slicing. Peel and slice the onion half. The chilli was sliced across the way with the seeds intact but they can be removed if you wish.

A few minutes before the chicken steaks are due to come out of the oven, pour around a tablespoon of olive oil in to a small non-stick frying pan and bring up to a medium to high heat. Add the cabbage, onion and chilli and season with salt and pepper. Saute for a few minutes, stirring extremely frequently with a wooden spoon.

Preparing easy garlic mushrooms

Pour a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in to a small saucepan and put it on to a medium heat. Rinse or brush the mushrooms and add them to the pan. Peel and grate the garlic clove in with the mushrooms and add the dried sage. Season with a little salt and pepper and saute for a couple of minutes, again stirring frequently.

Baked breaded chicken steaks

Take the chicken breast steaks from the oven and lift them to your serving plate. Spoon the cabbage combination and the garlic mushrooms alongside to serve.
