Juno Demelo, Nutrition Editor at Fitness magazine, demonstrates the simple, super-fast way to bake homemade kale chips.
To make homemade kale chips, you can begin by tearing the leaves into bite-size pieces, washing them and drying them really thoroughly with clean dish towels. You're gonna lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet, drizzle them with olive oil and massage the oil in with your hands. I found that one really large head of kale took about four baking sheets and that's because you want the leaves to be in a single layer so they get really crispy rather than steaming. Once you've done that, you're going to sprinkle the whole baking sheet with sea salt and you're going to pop it in an oven that you've preheated to 300 degrees. I found that it took about 25 minutes for the kale to turn into crispy chips but do check it starting after about 15, maybe even 20 minutes max and don't pull them out until they're completely dry, crispy and there's no moisture left. That's how you make homemade kale chips.
