What's For Dinner

Lately I have been in a cooking lull/slump/lacking inspiration kind of mood. However, this week I decided to get back up on the saddle. I am always looking for one skillet meals...easy and tasty. So last night I made a chicken and kale dish. It was tasty, easy and filling. 

Calls For:

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 4 Boneless Chicken Breasts 
  • Kale (1 bunch with stalks removed and chopped into thin ribbons)
  • 2 Teaspoons Oregano
  • 1 1/2 Cups Pizza Sauce
  • 1 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese 
  • Onion - wasn't on the recipe but I added it (amount to taste)
  • Garlic - wasn't on the recipe but I added it (amount to taste)
  • red wine - wasn't on the recipe but I just threw in a glug as well

Prep & Cook:

  • Preheat Oven to 375 degrees
  • Heat a glug of olive oil (and red wine if desired) in a large skillet over medium heat, season both sides of chicken breast with salt and pepper and pan fry both sides until golden brown. Once cooked remove from skillet to a plate.
  • Add another bit of oil into the skillet and sauté the onion and kale until wilted. Toss with salt and pepper to season. 
  • Nestle the chicken and its juices back into the skillet with the kale. Sprinkle oregano over top.  Mix the pizza sauce with 1/2 cup water and pour it over the chicken and kale. Top with shredded mozzarella and garlic and bake for about 20 minutes. 
  • Serve with crusty bread
