Chicken & Kale Alfredo Bake

So today my hubby and I made up a really good recipe, and I just had to share....

Ingredients:

8 Chicken Thighs (I used boneless/skinless)
1 lb. of kale, stripped off the ribs & chopped
1 yellow onion, diced
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 c. sour cream
2 c. heavy cream
2 t. thyme (dried)
2 t. paprika
6 TBS Butter, divided
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. Parmesan cheese, divided
Salt to taste
Optional:  1 Poblano Pepper, diced

1.  On medium high heat, melt 2 TBS butter and saute garlic with thyme and a pinch of salt.  

2.  When garlic begins to turn a golden brown, turn heat down to low, and add sour cream, heavy cream, paprika, and 3/4c parmesan cheese.  Continue to heat and mix, but do not boil.  

3.  Cover bottom of a roasting dish with chopped onions, chopped poblano pepper & kale.  (You cannot have enough kale, and it will cook down to barely anything)

4.  Place chicken thighs on top of kale.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, Garlic Powder and remaining parmesan cheese.  

5.  Pour alfredo sauce over all the chicken.

6.  Cut remaining butter into 8 slices and put one slice on each piece of chicken.

7.  Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees, or until done.  (Cover the first 30 minutes)



Sorry the pictures aren't great, as it was an after thought.  It tasted so good, I had to share with others.
