This amazing Creamy Chicken and Kale dish is so delicious and super easy to make, perfect for those busy weeknights when you need a comforting meal.
Season the chicken thigh pieces with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken thigh pieces and cook until they are browned and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. (Add a little bit of oil if the pan is dry)
Add the chopped kale to the skillet and cook for about 3 - 5 minutes until it wilts and becomes tender.
Reduce the heat to low and pour in the heavy cream. Stir well and simmer for a few minutes until the cream starts to thicken slightly. (You can add more cream if you like the dish creamier)
Add the cooked chicken back into the skillet with the creamy kale.
Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and mix until everything is well combined and coated with the creamy sauce. If desired, sprinkle red pepper flakes on top for a bit of heat. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is heated through and the flavors meld together.
Remove from heat and serve the creamy chicken and kale hot. You can garnish it with additional grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
