* I added a few cups of boxed chicken stock at the end, because enough of mine had boiled down, I felt the kale didn't have enough broth on it to cook it right. That worked out fine.
*I also made this early in the day, then stopped after I added the chicken back in & put in the diced carrots. I just let it sit there until It was about supper time & then added the kale & simmered it the rest of the time. So it was done when I needed it done. :)
