recipe {boursin chicken & kale with orzo}

this recipe is a combination of two that i had received from friends.  it's an easy dinner that #1 tastes great #2 uses only 1 skillet and #3 looks faaaaancy!

boursin chicken & kale with orzo

4 chicken breasts
1 bunch of kale, chopped
boursin cheese
sliced cherry tomatoes
chopped onion
white wine
pasta sauce
parmesan cheese

-heat oven to 350 degrees
-pound out the chicken breasts.  this works best to place the chicken in between plastic wrap
-place some boursin cheese in the middle of the thin chicken breast
-roll chicken and secure with tooth picks, salt & pepper
-using a hot cast iron skillet with a little bit of oil, brown chicken on all sides {chicken doesn't have to be completely done b/c it will cook more in the oven}and remove from skillet
-add chopped onion, cherry tomatoes, and chopped kale to skillet and sautee for a few minutes adding a splash of white wine
-once kale wilts a bit place chicken breasts on top of kale mixture
-spoon pasta sauce on top of each chicken breast and sprinkle with parmesan cheese
-place cast iron skillet in oven and bake until chicken is completely done
-serve over cooked orzo

  2. I didn't think it was possible to elevate the boursin chicken recipe - but it looks like you've done it! YUM!
