Rotisserie Chicken with Spicy Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette and Sautéed Kale 

This is one of my favorite cheat meals. By cheat I mean I use a whole rotisserie chicken from Wal-Mart already cooked and it cuts the time down significantly. Now, the Spicy Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette and Sautéed Kale make this dish over the top. So simple yet delicious! 

1 whole Rotisserie Chicken
1 large bag of Kale, about 10 cups
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
¼ cup olive oil
salt and black pepper

Meanwhile, whisk together the lemon juice, thyme, crushed red pepper, 2 tablespoons of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. 

Add ¼ cup water and as much kale as will fit and cook, tossing frequently and adding more kale when there is room, until tender, 8-10minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper.

Cut up rotisserie chicken into section that you enjoy, set aside.

Serve the chicken with the sautéed kale and drizzle with the lemon-thyme vinaigrette.

I always like to double the vinaigrette. We enjoy the extra.
