Chicken with Savoy Cabbage and Feta         Preparation and cooking time 30 minutes
    I love Savoy cabbage - especially the fact that it cooks so fast, perfect for stir-fries.... And skillet dinners!

2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
1/3 savoy cabbage, about 2 cups, sliced
4oz (120gr) mushrooms
1 onion
2 cloves garlic
1 rib celery

1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp maizena dissolved in 1 tbs water
