Pan fried Chicken with Kale and red Capsicum

What is Kale

Kale is a member of the cabbage family, a leafy green that’s related to Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and other cruciferous veggies. It’s been growing in popularity because of its wide variety of health benefits and high concentration of vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Vitamin A and C are the highest contents of this delicious leaf.

There are as many types of kale as there are ways to prepare this delicious leafy vegetable, and it comes in a range of colors from deep green and purple to even white and pink. Unlike its relative the cabbage, kale doesn’t grow in a round head, but in long stalks similar to romaine lettuce. The most common variations of kale include curly, purple, and Dinosaur or Lacinato kale.

What is stir-fried

Stir-frying is a Chinese cooking technique in which ingredients are fried in a small amount of very hot oil while being stirred in a yok or pan. The technique originated in China and in recent centuries has spread into other parts of Asia and the West.
