Sweet and Spicy Chicken and Kale "Egg Roll" Saute

This meal is delicious and satisfying while being easy and nutritious. The best of everything! 

coconut oil or olive oil
1 small red onion
3 chicken breasts- sauté with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Set aside to cool and dice
1 bag of broccoli slaw
4-5 pieces of kale-de-veined and chopped
salt, pepper and garlic or garlic powder
ginger to taste- I grated fresh ginger and just used a small sprinkling. Maybe 1/2 a tsp.
pinch of red pepper flakes- or more if you like it really spicy
2 TBSP rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
sweetener- I used my stevia blend. Honey or just sugar would work great too.
toasted sesame seeds or slivered almonds

Heat a sauté pan with your desired amount of oil on medium heat. Add in the onions and sauté until they are translucent and soft. Add in the diced chicken, slaw and Kale. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. If you want to use raw garlic, you could grate or finely mince it. Also add the rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and sweetener. Stir to combine. If it seems dry, you can always add a bit more oil. Continue on with the ginger, if you love ginger feel free to add even more than I did, red pepper flakes and slivered almonds, if using. Cook for one more minute. Serve with a light sprinkling of sesame seeds, if using.
