Creamy Kale Chicken Recipe
- 2 chicken breasts, skinless or with skin
- half a cup creamy coconut milk
- a quarter cup bone broth or stock of your choice
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 4 to 6 shredded kale leaves
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil of choice
- salt to taste
- fresh herbs of choice for garnishing (optional)
In a pan at medium heat, heat up the cooking oil.
Fry the chicken breasts top side or skin side first until golden brown for about 8 minutes.
Flip them over to the other side and cook until they start to loose rawness for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the garlic and spread it around the chicken and leave it cook for about 2 minutes until it starts to get golden brown without burning.
Add the basil and mix then add the coconut milk and broth and bring to a simmer.
Once it starts to simmer taste and season with salt, then add on the kale leaves mixing them into the sauce until they wilt, then reduce the stove heat to low.
Leave it cook for about a minute or until kale is cooked to your preference and sauce has reduced to your preferred thickness.
Take it off the heat ready to serve, and garnish with fresh herbs of your choice.
*Add a bit more broth or stock and coconut milk if you want more sauce, and leave it simmer before serving.
