I guess I am on a kale kick these days. Kale is really a powerhouse food. It is packed with healthy fiber and antioxidants. These powerful antioxidants help protect our cells from free radicals that cause oxidative stress. Kale also is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin A & Vitamin C, which are both crucial antioxidants that help our bodies boost immunity and fight off diseases.
So if that isn’t reason enough to be “on a kale kick” these days, I don’t know what is 🙂
The ginger, soy and honey blend perfectly together in this dish. Next time I am definitely making a double batch! I bet this would be yummy with some toasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top….next time 🙂
Ginger Soy Chicken and Kale
4 tablespoons low sodium organic soy sauce
1 tablespoon organic toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger root
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2-3 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts cut up into 1 inch cubes
2 cups of kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
Place all ingredients except for chicken and kale in a small bowl and whisk until completely blended.
Place chopped chicken in a ziploc bag and pour half of the marinade into bag. Make sure the bag is closed and shake it up so all the chicken is covered. Let marinade for at least a half hour (but even overnight would be great!)
After chicken is marinating, place 1 tablespoon olive oil in pan and saute until fully cooked and no longer pink.
Add kale and cook until it is still bright green but only a little soft (I like it when it still is a little crunchy). Add remaining marinade and make sure it is completely mixed. Makes 3 servings.
