Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place kale in a large bowl and drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well, ensuring pieces are evenly coated in oil.
  • Divide kale evenly between two baking sheets. It is important to lay the kale on a single layer. This helps the kale become crispy and avoids steaming which makes the chips soggy.
  • Bake for 12-20 minutes, checking after 12 minutes, until crispy and lightly browned.

Notes
