A little Asian and a little French, this chicken dish marries all of the umami-laden, elegant flavors you crave into one surprisingly low-calorie, low-carb, all-tastes-on-deck package. Tender chicken in enrobed in a sweet and fragrant glaze of honey, orange zest, and rosemary and pan-seared to lock in irresistible juiciness. Laid atop a bed of citrus-massaged kale dressed with orange slices and creamy, tart bleu cheese, the textures are crisp, buttery, and perfect for dredging the chicken to sop up all of the can't-get-enough-of-'em flavors.

    1

    Prep the Vegetables

    • Rinse, de-stem, and chop kale leaves. • Rinse the orange and zest one half, then peel and divide into segments. • Rinse the rosemary. Pick 8-10 leaves off bottom of rosemary sprigs and mince. • Mince garlic. • Thinly slice the shallot. • Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Glaze

    Sear the Chicken

    • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. • Warm 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. • Once oil is hot, add the chicken breasts. Sauté chicken for 4-6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. • Cut into chicken to ensure doneness (no pink should remain). • Spoon half the glaze from the mixing bowl over the chicken while still in the pan (reserving remaining glaze for plating) and allow to cook for 1-2 more minutes. • Remove chicken from pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  • Step 4 - Massage and Prepare the Kale Salad

    Massage and Prepare the Kale Salad

    • Whisk garlic, seasoned rice wine vinegar, remaining orange zest (reserving a bit for garnish), and 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a clean bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place kale and half the dressing in a large bowl and, with clean hands, massage kale with dressing for 3-5 minutes. Kale will soften and sweeten during this process. After massaging kale, add orange segments, sliced shallots, bleu cheese crumbles, and remaining dressing and toss. Salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 5 - Plate the Dish
