In our family, there is one vegetarian and 3 meat eaters. This recipe is easily adapted to suit us all. I made as written up until step 4. Instead, I sautéed the kale and garlic without the chicken, and then removed 1/4 for my serving and put it into a smaller pan. In original pan, I proceeded as written adding the chicken, broth, butter, and cheese (had Parmesan on hand). In the veggie pan, I substituted white beans for the chicken and added remaining ingredients. All of us agreed it was excellent. Thank you for a terrific recipe.

Mmmm. This was a great way to use all the kale I got at my CSA. I sauteed the chicken and LOTS of kale in olive oil and added feta and some pasta. Yum. The more greens/feta, the better.

Where has this dish been all my life? WOW! I don't care for feta cheese so I grated up fresh parmesan cheese and couldn't get enough! My son pigs out on this when I make it. Thank you for one of the best recipes I have ever tried! A++++++++++++++++

I have never cooked kale before, and my husband said he really didn't like it. Well, I had to substitute mozzarella (no feta), and couldn't use garlic or onion. But it still came out extremely yummy, and hubby loved it. I'll be doing this one again, hopefully with the feta next time.

This was very good. It was a cinch to make, too; I used leftover chicken from a whole roasted chicken we made the night before. Thanks for the recipe!

This is positively excellent! Very easy to prepare and a gorgeous finished dish. I cut up the chicken before I sauted it but I followed the rest of the recipe as written. Sweetie's comment was "You've really outdone yourself this time." The only thing I might do next time is throw in a few sun dried tomatoes just because I like sun dried tomatos and greens. Thank you for an excellent dish that will become a regular at my house. It's wonderful.

Very yummy. I used chicken that I roasted in the crock pot. I decided to add some onion that I sauteed in oil and canned tomatoes, broken up, that I had left over. I think this was a wonderful addition. I also used the parmesan cheese. Good recipe, I'll make it again. thanks

This was absolutley delicious! I too, diced the chicken before sauteing and seasoned with my favorite spices. I didn't have feta so I used asiago cheese which was very good. I am excited to try it with the feta however as I think it will add a salty tang to the recipe which the asiago did not provide. Thanks for sharing!

This dish even passed the husband test, who is very strict and has several chefs as friends. I accidentally used all of my feta on a previous dish so I had to use mozzarella. I cut the chicken up prior to cooking it so that I could just throw the kale in when it was done. I also seasoned the chicken up real well with some of my favorite spices when I cooked it. I also recommend using a large stockpot for cooking your chicken, as you will need it when you add all the pasta in at the end. This is definitely a keeper!
