A note about serious food allergies

This meal contains kale, which is very healthy and good for you. There. Got that over with. Now, on to the good stuff! These cheesy corn muffins are richly good, and you can use either those or the succulent chicken to sop up this outstanding sauce of tart-sweet balsamic, subtle sweet fig, deep demi, and herbaceous rosemary. Oh, and that healthy kale is cooked in rich cream sauce. Maybe “health” wasn't the right hook for this meal.

    Stem and mince rosemary.

    Stem kale and coarsely chop.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Make the Cornbread Muffins

    In a mixing bowl, combine corn muffin mix, cheese, and 1/3 cup water until a thick batter forms. Divide batter evenly into four cups of prepared muffin tin.

    Bake in hot oven until muffin tops are lightly browned and start to crack, 15-17 minutes.

    While muffins bake, cook chicken.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.

    Once boiling, add kale. Cover, and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally until kale wilts and sauce has thickened, 5-6 minutes.

    Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove from burner.

    While kale cooks, make sauce.
