In this recipe, we’re serving up juicy chicken (dredged in flour and pan-seared) with a duo of German-inspired side dishes. We’re braising delicate savoy cabbage with honey and apple cider vinegar, turning it tender and delicious. To complement the cabbage, we’re also making a filling potato salad with whole grain Dijon mustard and fresh herbs. All together, it makes for a warming winter dinner, rich with the robust flavors of hearty German cooking.
