The main protein source for this dish comes from juicy chicken thighs that get fried up in olive oil and smothered in a tasty mix of herbs and spices. Once the chicken is ready, you can add a bunch of rich and nutty mozzarella cheese to melt over the top (which is easily done by putting a lid over the pan). Once the cheese is melted, the last ingredient is some chopped-up cooked bacon to give the dish an even more amazing flavor profile.

If you’re not a fan of mozzarella, feel free to swap it out for any other melty cheese like parmesan or cheddar. Regardless of which cheese you use, it will add more depth to the dish, extra flavor, and more protein. 

The final component of the dish is the chopped-up sautéed green cabbage, which you can quickly make in the same pan you cooked the chicken in. Once cooked, plate up the dish, sprinkle on some freshly cut chives, and get stuck in!
