Kale Salad with Chicken and Sweet Potato | Everyday Food with Sarah Carey



One of my greatest joys in the kitchen is making convenience foods delicious and healthful. In our October issue, we have a whole column devoted to doing just that with frozen breaded chicken tenders. Today, I’ll show you one of my favorite recipes from that feature, a super-hearty, totally nutritious fall dinner salad made with kale, roasted sweet potatoes, almonds, and, yes, frozen breaded chicken tenders. (Don’t have sweet potatoes on hand? You can swap in carrots or butternut squash.)

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
You won’t believe how easily the recipe comes together. The sweet potatoes and the chicken roast together on a sheet pan. I’ll also show you the easiest way to prep kale (it’s so simple), plus I’ll teach you how to make a dressing for the salad right in the serving bowl. No extra dishes dirtied here. Now that’s what I call convenient!
