Sara's Chicken with Sautéed Kale
|Sara's Chicken with Sauteed Kale|
Instead, I decided to make some sautéed kale on the side to go with the chicken this week. Using the chicken's pan drippings to sauté the kale really gave it a lot of flavor and I highly recommend trying it.
After the chicken was done and out of the oven, I simply took about 1/4 cup of the pan drippings and put it into a sauté pan.

Sautéed Kale with "Sara's Chicken" Sauce Recipe
1/4 Cup of pan drippings from "Sara's Chicken" recipe
2-3 big handfuls of chopped kale (I used about half of a 16 oz bag of already chopped/cleaned kale)
dash of salt and pepper
splash of apple cider vinegar
1.) Make "Sara's Chicken"
2.) After the chicken is done, take about 1/4 cup of the pan drippings and put into a saute pan on medium heat.
3.) Let the pan drippings bubble and reduce a bit (1-2 minutes) to create a bit of a sauce.
4.) Add kale and toss continuously so that all of the kale gets coated in the sauce.
5.) After just a few minutes, the kale should be wilted and ready for a taste test. If needed, add a dash of salt and pepper.
6.) Add a splash of apple cider vinegar and toss before plating alongside your delicious chicken.
