A Food Post (What? No SB pictures!)

     I haven't posted about food in a LONG time! It's not that I haven't been cooking, I just haven't been photographing my food. Sara Beth is way more photogenic than my dinner! Anyway, tonight's meal was really yummy so I thought I'd share. I don't have a recipe exactly, more like a method. I just made it up as I went along.
Braised Chicken and Kale

1. Brown a couple of chicken breasts on both sides. Remove them from the pan.
2. Chop, then saute half an onion, a couple of garlic cloves, and a lot of kale (I used half of an extra-large bunch, but a small bunch would work fine.).
3. Deglaze the pan with a little chicken stock and a splash of white wine. Add the juice and zest of a lemon. Season with salt and pepper.
4. After that reduces a little, add about half a cup of marinara sauce (I had some homemade spicy marinara leftover from making pizzas.).
5. Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces (it won't be fully cooked yet) and add it back to the pan. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for a while.
6. Serve over mashed potatoes (although rice or pasta would be good too).
