1/4 Tsp Grape seed oil
7 Oz Chicken, sliced
1/4 Cup Zucchini, pearls
1/2 Cup Cherry tomatoes, confit
1/4 Cup Green onion
1 Cup Kale, blanched and sliced
1 Tbsp Lime juice


step #1

Start by heating up a non-stick pan with grape seed oil before adding your chicken. Season it with sea salt and pepper to your taste, and allow it to sear.

step #2

Next, add your zucchini pearls and tomatoes confit to the chicken. You can also add another pinch of salt if you desire. 

step #3

Once the chicken is nearly fully cooked, mix in the green onions. There should still be a little liquid in the pan from your zucchini and tomatoes, which will complement the onions perfectly.

step #4

Toss in your blanched kale at this point. It just has to reheat, so pour in the lime juice to add extra flavor and to deglaze the pan. 

step #5

Ready to serve!
