Wash produce before use


Cook the spaghetti

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Stir in the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water.
While the water heats and the spaghetti cooks, prepare the chicken.


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until slightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Add more oil between batches if needed. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the onion and garlic.


Prep and cook the onion and garlic

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic and balsamic vinegar and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
While the onion cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the spaghetti

  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the hazelnuts.
  • Measure 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] Parmesan; set aside the rest for garnish.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
To the pan with the onion, working in batches if needed, stir in the kale and as many chile flakes as you like and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the kale begins to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the spaghetti and reserved pasta cooking water and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
Remove from the heat and stir in the hazelnuts, parsley, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] Parmesan. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the spaghetti to individual bowls. Top with the chicken, sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan, and serve.
