Curried Chick Peas & Chicken with Kale

Curry Chick Peas & Chicken

At the end of a long weekend the last thing I wanted to do is spend a lot of time cooking on a Sunday night, so I came up with this dish using only a few ingredients- quick and healthy.

Curried Chicken & Chick Peas with Kale
Chick peas, cooked
Chicken thighs, boneless, diced
Kale, washed and chopped
Yellow onion, diced
Garlic, peeled and chopped
Mustard seeds
Olive oil
Cumin, ground
Chili Peppers, optional for more spicy
Curry paste or powder
Water or chicken stock
Kosher salt 

1. Saute the onion, garlic, mustard seeds till soft and light brown.
2. Add chicken, chick peas and spices, cover with liquid, bring to a simmer.
3. After about 30 minutes add the kale and cook till it wilts, check seasoning.

Note: Serve with a dollop of Nonfat Yogurt or Spicy Indian Pickle Vegetables
