Chicken and Kale Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Meesier42

A simple and rich chicken pasta dish that is very colorful and goes well with strong flavored vegtables such as asparagus. I recommend a good Merlot with this dish.

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.
