Kale Chips

Simple kale chips can be made with a simple kale massage—the perfect job for little helpers.


  • canola oil spray
  • 1 small bunch kale , stems and ribs discarded
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Position oven racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat to 300F. Spray oil generously on 2 baking sheets.
  • Tear kale leaves into 2-in. pieces. Rinse. Pat very dry with kitchen towel. Arrange kale in a single layer on prepared sheets. Spray tops lightly with oil, then rub until kale is well coated. Sprinkle with salt. Season with fresh pepper.
  • Bake in top and bottom thirds of oven, rotating and switching sheets halfway through, until chips are dry and crisp, 20 to 25 min.
