Instructions

Pound chicken breast half between two sheets of plastic wrap until each piece of chicken is 1/8-inch thick.

Stir together the 2 Tbsp. flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow container. Heat a large sauté pan over high heat.

Dredge chicken in flour mixture, shaking to remove any excess.

Sauté chicken in 2 Tbsp. oil in the hot pan until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a warm plate; cover with foil to keep it warm until ready to serve.

In the same pan used to cook the chicken, sauté onion in the remaining 2 Tbsp. oil over medium heat until translucent, 35 minutes.

Stir in the 2 tsp. flour and rosemary; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Deglaze the pan with broth, bringing liquid to a boil and cooking until mixture is slightly thickened. Stir in beans, kale, and chili garlic sauce; cook until kale is wilted, 12 minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in parsley. Season cannellini and kale with salt and pepper; serve with chicken cutlets.

Dredging the cutlets in flour helps them to brown, and the flour also acts as a thickener for the sauce.
