Total time: 50 mins | Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1 pound baby potatoes, halved lengthwise
  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 large lemon, sliced and seeds removed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 6 cups baby kale
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Cook, turning once until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, potatoes, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of each salt and pepper to the pan. Cook the potatoes, cut-side down, until browned, about 3 minutes. Stir in broth, lemon, garlic, and tarragon. Return the chicken to the pan.
