This rustic chicken supper is a one-dish meal through and through: It all comes together in one skillet and includes the main (chicken), starch (creamy cannellini beans), and side (braised kale and tomatoes). It also couldn’t be faster or easier to throw together—just 22 minutes from start to finish. You can use either lacinato kale, the kind with dark, bumpy leaves, or curly kale for this dish; just make sure to remove the stems as they won’t have time to break down before the dish is done. Swap the chicken for boneless center-cut pork chops on another night.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side (chicken will not be cooked through). Remove chicken from pan.

Step 2

Add onion, carrot, thyme, and garlic to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add wine; cook 2 minutes. Add kale; cook 3 minutes or until wilted. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, stock, and remaining ingredients; bring to a simmer. Add chicken; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until done.
