This healthy, well-rounded paleo chicken meal is great for weeknight dinners. The recipe only requires one pot to cook all of the ingredients in. Feel free to add mushrooms, bell peppers, or carrots as desired. The delicious sweet and savory sauce balances out the usually bitter kale and adds plenty flavor to the stir-fried chicken....
