Super simple, low-carb roast chicken and cabbage

Print this recipe
For cabbage lovers, this is the low-carb dream dish. It's so simple to throw together, you'll be done before the oven finishes preheating. For a juicier result, use a deeper dish, or even a pot. For a crispier version, use a sheet pan. Either way this roasted chicken makes for a perfect meal prep over some quinoa, farrow, or rice, or on it’s own for a low-carb meal. Plus, it’s even better the second day.
Once you have the footprint down, you can customize to your heart's content. Try adding potatoes or cannellini beans for more substance, or fresh chilis for more spice!
