  1. 1

    Start the Kale

    Turn oven on to 425 degrees. Let preheat, at least 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Set cream cheese on counter to soften.

    Combine 2 tsp. olive oil, kale, half the garlic pepper (reserve remaining for chicken topping), and a pinch of salt in provided tray.

    Cover tray with foil. Bake covered in hot oven, 10 minutes.

    While kale bakes, continue recipe.

    Pat chicken dry. Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, 1/4 the tomatoes (reserve remaining for pasta), half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for pasta and garnish), and remaining garlic pepper.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    Add pasta, remaining tomatoes, half the remaining Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish), a pinch of salt, and cream base. Stir to combine and push to one side of tray. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Place chicken in now-empty side of tray. Top evenly with cream cheese mixture, then panko.

    Spray chicken with cooking spray.

    Cover pasta half of tray with foil.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake half covered (pasta covered, chicken uncovered) in hot oven until pasta is heated through and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 20-25 minutes.

    Carefully remove tray from oven.

    Transfer chicken to a plate and stir pasta to combine.

    To serve, top pasta with remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
