Chicken thighs are the first to go in the oven (preheated at 400 F). Lesha doesn’t do much measuring while cooking; instead she just drizzles some olive oil, and sprinkles garlic powder and paprika over the thighs before they hit the oven. While they cook for about 25 minutes, she moves on to preparing the sweet potatoes.

The sweet potatoes get peeled and chopped. She then adds them to a pot of boiling water until tender. Once they’re soft she mashes them; then adds garlic salt, butter, and brown sugar to taste.

Lesha prefers to de-vein the kale by removing the thicker middle stalk that can be a bit more bitter and takes long to become tender. She chops the kale into manageable pieces and adds  butter and olive oil. The kale is cooked over low heat, covered, and periodically stirred to spread the heat evenly.

Garlic salt is a staple in Lesha’s cooking, “Forget about hot sauce, I put this shit on everything.”
