Ready in: 34 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 24 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • Freshly ground black pepper
    Produce
  • 1/3 cup frozen whole kernel corn
    Produce
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
    Baking
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    Produce
  • 5 1/2 ounces frozen chopped kale (about 2 cups)
    Produce
  • Kosher salt
    Spices and Seasonings
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    Produce
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    Canned and Jarred
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
    Oil, Vinegar, Salad Dressing
  • 2 ounces pepper jack cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
    Cheese
  • 4 8-ounce boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    Meat

Steps

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the kale, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the kale is softened and the garlic is fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the corn and cook, stirring, until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  • Transfer to a bowl to cool slightly, and then stir in the cheese.
  • Insert a thin paring knife into the thickest part of the chicken breast and cut down the side to make a 3-inch pocket. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts. Then evenly stuff with the kale mixture.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until very hot, 3 to 4 minutes. Rub the chicken breasts with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and sprinkle with a total of 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Add all 4 chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Then lower heat to medium. Continue cooking, turning once halfway through, until just cooked through, about 14 minutes more. Insert a small paring knife into the top of the chicken to test for doneness. If any pink areas remain, cover the skillet and continue to cook until opaque.
  • Transfer the chicken and any bits of filling that fell into the skillet onto 4 plates. Stir the broth and flour together in a small bowl and then add to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the pan sauce over the chicken.
