Chicken Apple and Kale Casserole

Another week, another new post, and I promise it's another good one! We finally had our first potluck of the semester at the Roost this weekend (because every apartment should have a name, right?)...the theme was a simple celebration of April 12th, titled Another Good Ass Potluck. And it lived up to its name. Once again, everyone came through with a great assortment of food ranging from pasta to bacon and cheese stuffed mushrooms to bacon sauteed cabbage to apple pie to fruit salad to mac and cheese to guacamole to drinks from those who haven't discovered their cooking talents yet. I had spent all day walking around the city, and when I came back still didn't know what I was going to make. So I literally sat in front of my fridge and assessed what I had on hand until I came up with this casserole idea. And it was a try it for yourself! It's similar to my Sausage Kale and Egg Cake recipe, but is a bigger dish and a little bit more filling.

  2. Cut chicken breasts into small, approximately 1/2-inch cubes. 
  3. On a separate cutting board, chop apples and onions in a similar manner.
  4. Place meat in a large bowl, and toss with salt and pepper. 
  5. Add apples, onion, kale, and eggs and toss very well.

  7. Drizzle apple sauce over the top of the casserole
