chicken and kale one pan sheet dinner | gin and tonic

it’s friday, gang!  this week, i’ve got family on the mind.  as some of you might know, a few weeks ago,  my oldest and his wife landed in Athens. what some of you might not know is that Kelly—my daughter-in-law—has joined my youngest, junior style, in helping me here on style at a certain age.

you all remember Kelly from my Nordstrom’s haul post and video.  she’s joined the team to work on all things design. (anyone notice the new logo!) and in just a few short weeks, she’s gotten up and running. you’ll see her influence all over the blog—whether you know it or not. we’re excited to have her here, so everyone, please do give her a warm welcome.

Ingredients
  1. 1 (6-oz.) bunch lacinato kale, stemmed and torn into large pieces
  2. 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  3. 4 (5-oz.) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  4. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  5. 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  6. 2 (9-oz.) pkg. frozen artichokes, thawed and patted dry
  7. 1 lemon, cut into quarters
  8. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, divided
  9. 2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, finely grated (about 1/2 cup)
  10. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat broiler to high with oven rack in top position. Place a rimmed baking sheet in oven (do not remove pan while oven preheats).
  2. Combine kale and 1 tablespoon oil in a bowl; massage leaves with your hands until slightly wilted.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with black pepper and salt. Carefully remove pan from oven. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; tilt pan to coat. Add chicken to pan; broil 5 minutes. Add artichokes and lemon quarters to pan. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and sprinkle with 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme. Broil until chicken is done, 10 to 12 minutes. Place chicken on a cutting board. Add kale mixture to pan; broil until kale is frizzled and edges are crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Return chicken to pan; sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme, cheese, and red pepper. Squeeze lemon quarters over chicken and vegetables.
Notes
  1. Avoid thin cutlets here; the thickness of the breasts will keep them juicy as they roast.

the evenings are getting cooler even in georgia! so it’s time to slip a fringed tweed jacket from Ann Taylor over my shoulders. but if it gets too hot, this classic bow blouse can stand alone. the blouse is untucked this time around so you can’t see the brass buttons that line the sailor blue jeans. but that’s the beauty of a longer blouse. tuck or untuck the choice is yours. and to add a pop of color and texture leopard flats will do the trick. this pair is old, but Ann Taylor has a 2019 version available here, here, and here. and guess what? there’s 40% off 3 full-price items, 30% off 2 full-price items, and 20% off 1 full-price item. here are a few things that caught my eye:

with both junior style and Kelly now here with me on the blog, i find myself thinking a lot about new beginnings.  might seem a bit odd, as fall just is the beginning of the end of the calendar year, but it does actually bring with it a lot of new beginnings.

those of you with (grand) kiddos know what i’m talking about,  it’s back to school time: elementary, middle-, highschool, or college.  whether it’s after school sports or clubs; parent-teacher conferences; moving the youngest into their dorm, it’s a new year full of possibilities.  and there’s no shortage of comings and goings.

i think back to falls when my children were younger.  monday night football practices. friday night sleepovers. how many of you had houses full of kids and their friends traipsing in and out?

all right gang, enjoy your weekend!  we’ve earned. but before you pour a drink, oscar and i want to hear from you. what new beginnings are happening in your life? are you welcoming a new child or grandchild this fall?  did you drop your son or daughter off at college? let us know down in the comments!  and as always, oscar, alex, kelly and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!

    Yes, love Fall. Seems to be a new beginning and love the seasonal colors, clothes, activities, etc.

    My husband and I are about to begin a new era in our lives by moving closer to family. We have never lived close to our family and looking forward to a new time.

    Thanks for your blog, you’re a classy lady!

    Loving the article and so happy you have family closer. Welcome to them and looking forward to all they have to offer. My kiddos are grown, one is back in school and one leaves again Sunday for the last 5 months of a job that has kept him away for 4 years so it is a little like a new beginning. I love Fall, the changing colors, and a bit of coolness in the air, and it is birthday season 😊. Cheers!

    I LOVE the new logo! The old entry to the blog, featuring a sale promo for the magazine, was bringing me down and the new one is a real lift!
    New beginnings in our family include an outdoor wedding on my birthday! We’re heading to a beautiful place near the north entry of Yellowstone the first week in October. It’s not too far for us, living in Eastern Idaho, but driving there with three small grandchildren’s will be crazy!!! I must say, I’ve had fun putting my trip wardrobe together (and helping with the kids’).

    Welcome, Kelly, I’ve notice the great new changes in your blog. I always love fall after the hot hot summer it’s great to have some cooler weather. I miss the Atlanta weather but I love the warmer temps here in South Georgia. I’m getting back on track to lose the remaining few pounds for my healthier lifestyle I started a couple of years ago. Beth, thanks for your great blog, it has been inspirational and I’m loving the styles and recipes.

    January 1 seems like mid-year to me, as new beginnings were always in September, at the start of the school year.

    Off to dorm life for my boy. New beginnings in September mark the passage of time. Life and time are moving forward.

On the first day of school, my daughter sends a picture of my oldest granddaughter as she is leaving for school to begin a new year. My youngest granddaughter is 5 weeks old, a sweet bundle of sugar. These new beginnings do keep life fresh and exciting at any age! You are a lucky gal to have Kelly and Alex on you team!

I am 63 and this is my very first grandchild! A whole new world has opened up to me! All your new changes are embraced with love from me. Can’t wait to see our future with you and your new team!

    The only change we are experiencing is that our oldest granddaughter (who lives with us) has graduated and is now working full time in her chosen profession. It’s fun to watch her navigate this new adult world that she is experiencing. Much love❣️❣️

    Beth, I love your take on fall being a new beginning. After teaching for 30 years and also raising 2 children who participated in just about everything, I feel the same way. We especially love fall because it’s football season. We have lots of teams to support. It’s
    Go Hawks, MIZ-ZOU, and Go Big Red on Saturday. Then we put on our Red and Gold for the KC Chiefs on Sunday!
    So glad to hear you will have more of your family helping you with this wonderful blog. Love your style!

    Hi Beth
    I noticed the change in your logo. It is super chic! Welcome Kelly. What a great addition to the blog! I enjoyed the Nordstrom dressing room post. Jr Style continues creating beautiful photos, and the videos are nice additions. I have always thought that fall is the time for new resolutions and habits instead of New Years. Maybe because of the new school year starting. My mother in law recently passed away and that will be a change in our lives indeed. We will be touring some National Parks of the West including the Grand Canyon this fall with our grown sons. It will give us a chance to relax and enjoy the wonder of nature. God bless your whole family.

    My daughter was due to start her first year in college when she was killed. After her Celebration of Life, as my oldest and closest friends and family came to my home, I remember thinking “If these people stay close to me, I will survive this”. 16 years later, I’m here to remember. Family is sacred.

    Thank you for the great suggestions. I must admit that I did a little damage at the Ann Taylor sale. I purchased several of the items that you mentioned. Can’t wait to get them.
    I hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy your extra special family time.

    Welcome Kelly! Athens is one of my favorite places in Georgia! Maybe I love it because two of my children live there! I’m sure you will enjoy Athens-especially trying out the wonderful restaurants Athens has to offer. And it doesn’t hurt to have family close by either.

    Beth, this fall is a beginning for me as well! I have been retired from education for the past two years and just went back on a part time basis. I am loving every minute of it! I was a little worried about changes over the past couple of years, but have hopped back in very easily. You can bet I enjoyed retirement, traveling and spending time with my grands was great. But, I have realized that working with high schoolers is my passion and I am thankful for this new beginning.
