Sauerkraut with exotic tendencies

I often buy Sauerkraut in Aldi and Lidl and keep it as a “safety” food at home. It comes in jars or “pockets”, and it´s super easy to come up with something interesting. Usually I used it in combination of meat, and while we like the taste, the sourness of some version is a bit higher than we like it. This can be “doctored” a bit if I have a bit of sweet cabbage at home and mix the two cabbages together. (first I start with the sweet cabbage, and when it´s soft, I add the sour cabbage).

But today I didn’t had any sweet cabbage, so I decided to do a different combination: a bit of peas, a bit of green beans, chicken breast and the sour cabbage. It turned out way better than expected!

Ingredients:

100g peas (frozen)
150g green beans(frozen)
630g chicken breast, cut to stripes
350g Sauerkraut
1 medium onion
40g butter
3 tablespoons of olive oil
little bit of water (3 tablespoons)
Spices: Nutmeg, Cumin, Fennel and Curcuma, salt, pepper and a bit of red smoked paprika

Heated up the oil and butter in the wok, sautéd the onion a bit, added the  chicken breast and stirred until white, almost done. Added the frozen peas, green beans and Sauerkraut, continued the cooking process on high heat. After a few minutes added the condiments, mixed well , addeed the water and covered the wok with a lid for 5-6 minutes
