Feeling Lazy? Grab some chicken and kale!

With a 5 year old and 3 year old, food prep is hard sometimes!

Like today, for example…two girls decided naps were not happening after an hour of &#%$ing around, tattling on each other, getting up to come tell me “something important”, etc.

So I got them both up and made them sit on kitchen chairs watching me prep for the week…slicing Brussels, marinating chicken thighs, making egg muffins…no music (much to the chagrin of me AND Alexa), no TV, no talking…you get it. Basically, NO FUN.

So…on a night when I am worn out, this recipe is so easy and delicious….

Take one bunch of kale, ribs removed and sliced..put that in a large saute pan on medium with about 2T avocado or XV olive oil, add S&P and cook down a bit…about 10 minutes and stirring every few minutes.

Then I took some frozen chicken tenders I had bought…about 6-7…and sliced them thin and added to the pan.

*I thawed by putting the bag in a bowl under some running water “restaurant style” and sliced while slightly frozen…you can always turn the heat down on the stove to accommodate.

Added about 2 T balsamic vinegar, 3 minced garlic cloves and a little more oil if needed.

Then threw sun dried tomatoes. I had taken one cup of dried ones and put them in about 2 cups water with some salt and microwaved for about 3 minutes to ‘plump’ them up.

Added and tossed, tasted, a little more S&P and some nutritional yeast and DONE!

*you can serve over some pasta if not eating #whole30 add pasta water to help with “sauce”.
