Adventures in Eating--Coconut Sesame Chicken

Part of my food plan is to rotate foods, not eating the same things two or more days in a row. This is to prevent new food sensitivities from developing.

Yesterday's meals included kale, which I've never tried before, and which is slightly bitter until it is cooked.

I cook like Amelia Bedelia, so I don't have an exact recipe, but here's the basic idea:

I chopped up about an eighth of onion and about a third of the bunch of kale and stir-fried it in olive oil just until it was tender.  I added a cut up chicken breast, a handful of coconut, and about a tablespoon of sesame seeds. When it started getting too dry and sticking to the pan, I added a splash of Bragg's liquid amino. 

Since it was quinoa day, I served it over a heaping pile of quinoa.  This was very good, but a bit salty. Apparently I need to dilute the liquid amino. But the flavor was amazing.

  1. I toss finely cut Kale on my salads, but I've never tried stir-frying it. I'll have to give it a try sometime.
