  • Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes

Units Scale

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place the chopped cabbage in the bottom of a large slow-cooker (at least 6 quarts). Add the cauliflower rice on top.
  2. Next, place the chicken thighs on top of the vegetables and add the broth, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  4. Use green cabbage or red cabbage, either one is delicious.
