Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 Ounces fully cooked spicy andouille chicken and turkey sausage (4 links)
  • 3 Cups cooked kamut
  • 1 Cup water
  • 1/2 Cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 Teaspoon crushed red chile pepper flakes
  • 2 Cups packed kale
  • 2 Teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring frequently, until the sausage is browned lightly, about 3 minutes. Next, add the cooked kamut, water, tomatoes, and crushed red chile pepper flakes, and stir.

Place 1 cup of kale on top, cover, increase the heat to high, and cook until it wilts, for 2 minutes. Add the remaining kale, cover, and continue cooking until the kale is tender, about 7 more minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and stir. Serve, and enjoy!

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
