Chicken and Cabbage in a Bag

I offer you a simple and budget recipe that will help you quickly and deliciously feed the whole family or a large number of guests. We'll bake chicken meat in the oven on a vegetable pillow. The roast chicken in a bag with cabbage is very tender, juicy and tasty. During baking, vegetables are impregnated with meat juice and become very soft and fragrant. For the recipe, you can use any part of the chicken: wings, drumsticks, thighs or whole legs. A marinade of soy sauce, honey and lemon juice gives the chicken a piquant sour-sweet note and forms an appetizing golden crust on top.
