    Suse40's Note:

    I turned a kale side dish into a main dish. You may get your family to eat kale after all. It looks pretty, too. You can add vegetables you have on hand, or what your family likes, and add as much heat as you like, too. I splashed it several times with a red wine, which made a fabulous aroma.

    Serves: 4-5



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place chicken cubes in a bowl or a plastic bag. Add chicken rub seasoning mix and shake or stir so that seasoning lightly coats pieces of chicken. (I cut the chicken while still pretty frozen, and the large cubes stayed nice and square for this step.)
    2. 2
      Heat oil in large skillet, then brown ckicken cubes, turning occasionally until lightly browned on the outside and the pink is gone on the inside. Splash cubes with a bit of wine.
    3. 3
      Remove chicken pieces to a plate or serving dish.
    4. 4
      Boil water in large saucepan and cook pasta according to directions, Whole wheat pasta usually take 14-20 mins, so start this before you cook the vegetables.
    5. 5
      Heat next 2 Tbsp of oil in skillet at medium-high setting.
    6. 6
      Add garlic, kale, carrots and celery. Stir often, cooking for about 5-6 minutes. Check the carrots and the kale to make sure they are tender.
    7. 7
      Add whatever peppers and onions you desire.
    8. 8
      Add entire can of tomatoes and juice from the can, and another splash of red wine to the vegetables. Season to taste.
    9. 9
      Add cooked chicken to the skillet.
    10. 10
      Turn down heat to low, and put on the skillet lid and let vegetables continue to cook and flavors blend while pasta is finishing .
    11. 11
      After 10 minutes, all the vegetables should be tender. Check seasoning. If the mixture is too "wet", take the lid off and heat on medium for a minute or two to reduce the liquid.
    12. 12
      You can serve the chicken mixture on top of the pasta with the parmesan cheese, or you can drain the pasta, stir it into the chicken mixture, add the parmesan cheese and serve it in one platter.
    13. 13
      Add a warm loaf of crusty bread, and the rest of the red wine, and you have yourself a real heart-healthy supper! Mangi bene!

      Unfortunately, something was missing in this recipe, for us. It's a good basic dinner, and I love that it uses kale, which we could eat every other day! I'll definitely make this again and play with it, as all the components are things we love. Thnx for sharing, Suse40. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!
