Juicy chicken on cabbage pillow

The preparation of such a wonderful dish like juicy chicken on a cabbage pillow usually takes quite a bit of time.

The chicken, baked with vegetables, turns out to be ruddy, juicy and very tasty. No additional fats are used: juices, reduced by chicken and vegetables are quite enough.
