Baked Chicken with Kale and Artichokes

Don't you love a romantic dinner to share with your spouse or friend?  Of course you do but without the long preparation and big mess to clean up!  This one-pot recipe is a perfect dinner for two and a big smile from the beautiful presentation and the smell will be sensational.

I added kale but you can use any green leaf such as spinach. If you want to add a little heat toss in chopped jalapeños or red pepper flakes.
