Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

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 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ⅓ cup [⅔ cup].
  • Thinly slice the olives crosswise, checking for any pits.
  • Rinse the capers.
  • Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.

3

Cook the kale and spinach

In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, olives, and capers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] lemon juice, ¼ cup [½ cup] water, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter or 1 to 2 teaspoons oil (from your pantry).

Working in batches if needed, add the kale and spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until the greens are wilted and the liquid has thickened to a glaze, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the kale and spinach to individual plates and top with the chicken. Garnish with the parsley and serve.
