These incredible little pieces of meat heaven will give you a big smile today! I learned about this recipe when I was still living in Chicago. A friend of mine gave this recipe and I have been using it ever since. It is food that you will never get tired of eating. It’s like every bite is so good that you want to follow it up with another one. By the way, if you do not have green cabbage, you can use red cabbage instead and if you happen to have turkey instead of chicken, you can use it as a substitute. You can also use yogurt as a substitute for coleslaw. I occasionally add red pepper flakes for that additional spicy flavor. Anyway,y I hope you all love this recipe. Enjoy!
