Daphne Oz's Kale Chips - the COMPLETE recipe!

Having some kale that I need to use before it goes bad, my ears perked up when I heard Daphne Oz was making kale chips. I’d tried to make them before and both times were disasters – the first time undercooked and not crispy, the second time burnt to a crisp, so I was really amped to see how to make them.  As you probably know, the recipe wasn’t shown on air, just mentioned that it was on the website. Went there & SURPRISE (not really on The Chew’s buggy website) no oven temp – just a time 15-18 minutes. So once again, I punted. 

Luckily this time my kale chips came out perfectly. Woohoo!

  • Set the oven temp to 375. 
  • Wash the kale & get as dry as possible on a paper towel.
  • Remove any thick or fibrous ribs – if you don’t, either the kale leaves will be perfectly crispy while the stems are underdone or the stems will be perfect and the leaves will be like charcoal. 
  • Put the kale in a bowl and lightly toss with a little olive oil, some sesame seeds and a tsp of minced garlic.
  • Daphne’s recipe said to add salt & pepper  (I didn’t because my sesame seeds had sea salt
  • Spread on a cookie sheet & put into the preheated 375 degree oven for 5-10 minutes. 
When the kale gets brown and crispy, it’s done. Either eat immediately or let cool and store in an airtight container.
