  • 2 bunches kale , tough center stems removed, chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts , cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 small onion , finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 8 ounces artichoke hearts , roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese , divided
  • 2 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs


  • Preheat oven to a high broil.
  • Add six cups of water to a large pot on high heat until boiling. Add the kale, reduce to medium-high heat and cook about 2 minutes until tender. Drain and dry the kale with paper towels.
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium-high heat. Season the chicken with the salt and pepper, then add it to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes until no longer pink. Set chicken aside in a medium bowl.
  • Reduce skillet to medium heat and add the onions. Cook about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until translucent, then sprinkle flour evenly over onions, then stir and cook for an additional minute.
  • Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until flour is dissolved, then stir in the chicken broth.
  • Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly reduced.
  • Add the kale, artichokes, cayenne, and chicken. Cook, 3-4 minutes until vegetables and chicken are hot, then mix in 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese.
  • Spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray and pour in the contents of the skillet. Top with the panko breadcrumbs and remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan.
  • Broil in the oven on the top shelf until lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
