Recipe: Kale Bowl with Herb Baked Chicken and Sautéed Tomato Slices

If you’re like me, you don’t think too much about tomatoes. I pretty much use them for sandwiches and salads, but rarely anything more complex than that. In this recipe, the sautéed tomato slices add a robust flavor that would have been missing with raw tomatoes. After making this, I want to add them to everything (think: omelettes).
