I’m so excited to be teaming up with Anjanette from mommayoungathome.com on a Monthly Recipe Swap. At the end of every month we’ll share the recipes we’ve swapped with each other. As we get to enjoy one another’s good ole home cooked meals make sure you snatch up 1,2,3 or all of the recipes we share with you and link up your recipe below.
If you haven’t been over to mommayoungathome.com make sure you check out her lovely blog where she shares home, family, crafts an you guessed it FOOD! If i’m not mistaking I met Anjanette a couple years ago through her blog and social media. It usually takes me a minute to click with people, but with Anj it was instant. She’s a wonderful wife, mom, blogger and one I can consider a blog friend.
Let’s get to the deliciousness!
Let me first start off by saying that my first encounter with Kale wasn’t a good one. I used it in a smoothie a couple summers ago and wasn’t impressed. When Anj had it in her recipe I put aside all fears and was excited about trying it a different way. This is what you’ll need for the recipe. At the end I added more kale, soy sauce, chicken broth and some cornstarch and water to thicken up my sauce.
1 tbsp Oil (I used olive oil)
Recipe called for chicken cutlets I used 4-5 chicken breast and cut them in half.
1/2 Cup diced red pepper
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
2 tbsp low salt soy sauce ( at the end I added more)
1 cup broccoli (cut small and lightly steamed)
4 kale leaves sliced ( I added more Kale later because it was too good)
In oil brown chicken.
before chicken is completely cooked add red pepper, garlic salt, pepper, soy and simmer.
Add Broccoli and cut Kale.
Cover and let simmer for for 3 more minutes max.
Possible Suggestions. Wisk a teaspoon of cornstarch to chicken stock and add to mixture for a thickening sauce. Plate over rice or quinoa.
I did use Anj’s possible suggestions by adding chicken broth and the cornstarch. What I did was add the rest of my kale (chopped) to the skillet, added more soy (be careful not to add too much) and in a separate bowl I mixed about 2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch, cold water and mixed it until smooth.
Then pour it in skillet, stir and let simmer until the rest of the kale is tender. I plated it over a bed of pasta.
This was so delicious!!!! I’m so glad I gave kale another try and can’t wait to pick up more when I go to the grocery store. It was so funny because while I was cooking the smell and aroma was so good. Felt like I was in Anjanette’s kitchen. LOL
