If you’re looking for an easy salsa recipe to share with friends or family, this is it! Give it a try for yourself and see what it’s all about! Mixing both hot and cold tastes and flavors, this chicken salsa recipe offers a unique spin on the familiar, perfect no matter the weather outside.
Heat up a non-stick pan with grape seed oil and add your sliced chicken, allowing it to sear.
Once the chicken is well seared, add in a half cup of chopped leeks, making sure to season everything with a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
Next, mix in the chopped kale and add the minced garlic. Make sure to give everything a good mix so the garlic gets incorporated evenly throughout the dish. Remove from heat and set aside for plating.
Meanwhile, spoon out a bed of salsa (or tomato coulis, depending on your preference) on a clean plate. Layer the cooked kale, leeks, and chicken on top of the salsa.
In your non-stick pan, quickly heat up the tomato slices. Once they've seared slightly, they're ready to top off your dish.
Ready to serve!

Fresh tomato salsa gives you all the great benefits of the ingredients it’s made from – in this case, hot peppers, fresh tomatoes, and onions. Hot peppers are a great source of capsaicin (the component in chili peppers that gives them their heat) which has been shown to help fight various cancers, particularly prostate cancer. Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, which supports your immune system and helps produce collagen for your body to use in structural support for your cells. Onions, like their cousin, garlic, are an anti-inflammatory and excellent source of antioxidants.
