Boy oh boy. I can eat a week's worth of green veggies in one sitting with these kale chips. Delish! I agree with another reviewer that salt should be added sparingly. I used a good quality and very flavorful olive oil so I really didn't need much salt. I started by cutting the stems with a sharp knife but the easiest way to prepare the chips is simply to pull the leaves off the stems. Spin them dry in a salad spinner and these are ready to pop in the oven. I will definitely make these again. Who knows, maybe I can even convince my teenager to eat some.

20 Reviews for Kale Chips
These kale chips were crunchy and delicious! I actually blow dried them to get them dry as towel drying didn't seem to do the job. I baked them on 2 sheets at 375 degrees for 5 mins, then I switched the sheets and baked for another 4 mintues. They were perfect! But every oven is different. Next time I will try with some different spices.
Delicious! I was very surprised at how much I liked these.
You HAVE to make sure the kale is dry otherwise you'll end up with steamed kale instead of crispy kale. I would also suggest tossing the olive oil and kale together, spreading on the baking sheets - then adding salt (or whatever seasoning you are using). First batch for me was WAY too salty, second batch not enough salt. I also add a little garlic powder and onion powder! Seasoning salt is another good choice for a little more flavor! FYI - To each his/her own BUT.... although cooking sprays may be quicker please take a look at the ingriedient list - they contain butane and propane! Why ruin healthy kale with that yuck....just saying! :)
I made these as a side with some mozzarella stuffed turkey burgers I also got from this site. My husband, who is not a veggie guy, said these were a great substitute for potato chips.
The only thing I changed was to put them on a rack on top of a pan, and cook them for 20 minutes are 225. i don't have a salad spinner so I couldn't get them completely dry before putting them in the oven. I also used a olive oil spray rather than drizzling it on. They came out perfect!
