You Will Need

- 1 Baking Sheet
- 1 Mixing Bowl

Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
- Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
- Seafood 145° F |
- Chicken 165° F |
- Ground Beef 160° F |
- Ground Turkey 165° F |

Prepare the Ingredients
Mince garlic. Stem kale and coarsely chop. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry.
Coat the Chicken
On a separate cutting board, cut chicken into thirds. Combine softened butter and Parmesan in a large mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add chicken to bowl and coat completely with butter-Parmesan mixture.
Bake the Chicken
Place coated chicken on prepared baking sheet and bake until chicken begins to brown, 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven, top each cutlet with mozzarella cheese, and bake until mozzarella bubbles and browns, and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-6 minutes. While chicken bakes, cook kale and spinach.
Cook the Kale and Spinach
Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic, 1 Tbsp. water, spinach, and kale to hot pan and cook until wilted, 3-4 minutes. Remove from burner and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove to a plate and wipe pan clean.
Heat the Sauce
Return pan used to cook greens to low heat. Add marinara sauce and 1/4 cup water to hot pan. Cook until warm, 2-4 minutes.
Plate the Dish
Add a serving of garlicky greens to a plate. Spoon sauce onto plate and place three chicken cutlets over sauce.
