    1 lb Boneless, skinless chicken breast
    1 cup Low-sodium chicken broth
    4 Scallions, chopped
    ½ tsp Salt
    4 cups Green cabbage, shredded

• Cut chicken breasts into 5 diagonal strips.

  • Sounds absolutely delicious!! But the amount of salt in one serving is more then I can eat in 2 days! Needing to keep salt down to 2000mg or below per day isn't easy!! - 9/2/12
