Makes 3 servings
Per serving:
1 Leaner protein
2 vegetables
1 condiment

12 ounces of cabbage leaves
12 ounces Shredded Chicken
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt
2 (4 ounce) cans of chopped green chilies
½ cup Fresh cilantro
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 ounces shredded cheese


For the Sauce:
Add the chicken broth to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and mix in 3/4 cup Greek yogurt and green chilies, heat thoroughly but do not boil and make sure to stir often. Let simmer for just a bit and the sauce should thicken.

For the Enchiladas:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Peel the cabbage leaves – make sure to peel them gently, as you don’t want them to tear. Run the cabbage under warm water as you peel. This will help a ton. Throw the cabbage leaves into the pot of boiling water for a couple of minutes. Remove and set on a paper towel to dry.
Mix the shredded chicken with chopped fresh cilantro and shredded cheese (save a little cheese for later).

Spread the sauce in the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish. Then take your cabbage leaves and place the chicken mixture inside of them and roll up. Place each cabbage roll in the baking dish. Once done, pour the rest of the sauce over them. Top with a little of the shredded cheese.
Bake at 350° for about 20 to 30 minutes. Top with balance of Greek yogurt!
