What's for Dinner?

My brother Tim sent us a recipe that we tried out last night. It's his rendition of a dish his friend ordered at a restaurant. We were a bit nervous because the volume of kale, but were surprised and pleased by how tasty it turned out to be! I wish I had taken a picture of it but you're just going to have to use your imagination about how it looks until you try it for yourself!

Thanks, Tim! It was delicious!

Tim's Kale and Cannellini Chicken

4 chicken thighs
olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 bunch kale, washed and chopped
1 15-oz can cannellini beans, drained
1 28-oz can stewed tomatoes, drained and chopped
salt and pepper
chicken stock

In a large frying pan, brown chicken thighs in olive oil. Remove from pan and saute onion and garlic in same pan. Add kale and stir till it wilts a bit.

Add beans and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add enough chicken stock to cover and stir well. Add the chicken thighs back to the pot. They should not be submerged in the liquid.

Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes. Serve over a bed or rice. Enjoy!
