  • 5 cups kale lacitano
  • 2 each chicken thighs cooked and diced
  • 2 tablespoons Italian dressing
  • 1/2 cup French bread cubed


  • Bake the chicken thighs on a flat tray for 20 minutes at 400 degrees until done (no longer raw in the center). Bake the French bread on a pan in the same oven as the chicken. Bake until it is toasted, about 10 minutes.
  • Cut the kale in bite-size pieces. Rinse under cold water in a colander. Pat dry.
  • Toss the kale and the Italian dressing in a large bowl. Top with croutons and chicken.


We are using Light Italian dressing instead of Caesar dressing because it usually contains about a third of the calories and it goes well with the kale. 
You can also add sliced baked potatoes if you want the meal to be a little heartier.
