Add in the kale and coconut cream and cook for 5 Minutes. Season to taste.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat until hot. Add a splash of olive oil and fry the chicken strips for 6- 8 Minutes until golden. Remove from the pan, add more oil if needed and fry the mushrooms for 3- 5 Minutes until tender.
