How to Make Sous Vide Chicken and Stir Fry Cabbage

The first step is to prep your sous vide chicken breast recipe with water as directed. The full directions for this are in the printable recipe card below.

Then you will place your chicken breasts into bags, and add in the lime juice and some of the Jax seasoning.

Seal the bags removing all the air. Then you will begin working on prepping your cabbage stir fry.

Larger pieces of cabbage are better than smaller ones in size. Shred the carrots and cut up the green onions and set them aside. Place the cabbage mix in the fridge until you are ready.

Once the chicken is done, pan-sear to give it a nice crust on the outside of the chicken.

Toss your cabbage and carrots into a pan and cook until it begins to soften. Use the marinade, and then place the mixture on a platter.

Top with chicken, add green onions and nuts, and serve up!


The cabbage is best served fresh and warm. It will soften up a bit if you store in the fridge. Which you can do, just know it is going to taste best fresh.

For the chicken you can place any leftovers in an airtight container and store for up to three days. If you have cabbage mixture pair in containers and use for meal prepping.

Then to reheat you can opt for the microwave, or add a little water to a skillet and heat it up that way.
