BBQ Kale Chips

Makes 5 servings

Kale chips have become a very popular healthy snack. These on-the-go kale chips are a great way to get your veggies in. Add your own twist with any favorite seasoning.


  • 1 bunch kale (about 1 pound)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/8 cup barbecue seasoning


The first step is the most important and is best done in advance. Rinse the kale and then dry well. You can dry by patting with a paper towel or laying out on some towels to air dry.

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Next, tear the leaves off the thick center stem. Place each piece on a well-sprayed and foil-covered cookie sheet. Then spray the kale well and sprinkle with the seasoning. Bake for about 12 minutes, turning halfway.

Once the chips are fully crisp, they are done. Some of the chips may finish first, so remove and continue cooking the rest.

Store in an airtight container if not eating right away.
