Add sausage and onion to large stock pot. Cook over medium-high heat browning sausage. Drain out as much grease as possible, I used tongs and paper towels to swab it out. Add chicken stock and peppers. Bring mixture to simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and add kale and gnocchi. Cook for 5 minutes or until  gnocchi is cooked through. Stir in cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Best Chicken Marinade

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar (or other vinegar)
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ⅛ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tbsp Dijon or Spicy Brown mustard
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 chicken breast or 3.5 lb chicken

  • Marinate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. Preheat grill to medium high heat and lightly oil the grates. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting the excess drip off. Grill chicken for 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Baste the chicken occasionally with the leftover marinade. Remove chicken from grill and tent with foil. Let chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before serving
Optional. If you bring the remaining marinade up to a boil, let simmer until slightly reduced, it makes a wonderful sauce to go on top of the chicken.

Label 24: Best Marinade Chicken- Thaw chicken & marinade 4-24 hrs. Grill chicken for 5-6 mins each side (or until cooked through). Baste chicken w/ marinade while cooking. For a sauce, simmer marinade until reduced.  6-16-16
