Cover the lid and stew the cabbage over low heat for 20 minutes. Then remove the lid and continue to stew until liquid evaporates (for 10-15 minutes). Take out the bay leaves. Cube a chicken breast. Peel bulb
onions and chop them finely. Preheat dairy butter on a frying pan, add the chicken and onion there. Fry the ingredients until golden. Put the brisket and onion in the roasting pan with cabbage.
