Expert Tips

  • If you can't find Sriracha sauce with its fiery bite, use your favorite brand of tried-and-true red pepper sauce instead.
  • The day before serving, slice the cabbage and chop the onion and place in a resealable food-storage plastic bag. Prepare chicken as directed in Step 2 and place in a resealable bag. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
