Description

A super-quick dinner loaded with color and flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Penne, Cooked To Al Dente And Kept Hot
  • 3 whole Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Cut Into Bite Size Pieces
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ¾ cups Dry White Wine
  • ¾ cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth (more If Needed)
  • 1 bunch Kale, Torn Into Small Pieces (stalks Discarded)
  • 2 cups Grape Or Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
  • Shaved Parmesan

Preparation

Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken chunks in a single layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Don’t stir for a minute or two in order to allow the chicken to brown on the first side. After that time, turn the chicken and brown on the other side. After 30 seconds, stir it around and cook it until it’s done, then remove chicken from the skillet and set it aside.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic and quickly stir it to avoid burning. After about 30 seconds, pour in the wine and broth. Stir the liquid, scraping to deglaze the pan. Allow it to bubble up, then continue cooking it until it reduces by at least half.

Turn off the heat, then add kale and tomatoes, the pasta and the chicken, and the Parmesan shavings. Toss it to combine; the kale will start to wilt/soften as it mixes with the other ingredients. Serve it right out of the skillet to hungry folks! Such a gorgeous and satisfying dish.

We love kale and this was a great way to use it in a main dish. Came together quickly with great flavor. My only change was to decrease the amount of pasta. I’m never sure what “1 bunch of kale” amounts to but I go for a BIG bunch! :)
