An incredibly easy dish (you only need ONE pot!) that comes together in a flash on a busy weeknight. The ginger sesame broth is strong and flavorful and will keep you coming back for more!


  • 2 cups chopped or shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 large head cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces portobello mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons diced fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (for Paleo/gluten-free, substitute coconut aminos)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 scallions, chopped (for garnish)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large pot, heat coconut oil over medium heat until melted. Add mushrooms, onion and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally until onion becomes translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add sesame oil, stir and cook for another minute.
  2. Add cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Stir and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add chicken and soy sauce. Stir.
  4. Add 1 1/2 cups water, stir and allow to simmer for approximately 5 – 10 minutes until cabbage is tender and the flavors of the broth fully develop. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Pour into bowls, topped with chopped scallions and enjoy!
