  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Aleppo pepper
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 8 thin chicken cutlets (about 2 oz. each), pounded to 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 bunches Tuscan kale, thick stems stripped
  • 2 lemons,halved
  • 1 oz. Parmesan shaved, plus more for serving


  • Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a large bowl, mix the lemon juice, oregano, Aleppo pepper, garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and add the chicken to the bowl. Toss to coat, and let it sit for 3 minutes, avoiding marinating for longer, as the lemon juice may begin to cook the chicken.
  • In a separate large bowl, mix the remaining 2tablespoons of oil and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and toss the kale in the mixture
  • Grill the chicken until it is charred and cooked through, for about 2 minutes per side, and then transfer it to plates. Grill the kale, turning it often, until it is charred and tender, which should take 3 to 4 minutes total. Transfer the kale back to the bowl. Grill the lemons, with the cut sides down, until they are charred, which should take 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Squeeze half of a grilled lemon over the kale, and toss it to combine. Then, add the Parmesan to the bowl and toss it together. Serve it over the chicken, with additional shaved Parmesan and grilled lemon halves.
