2 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs
1 1/4 tsp. ground coriander
1 tbsp. EVOO, plus more for drizzling

2 tsp. lemon zest and 3 tbsp. juice (from 1 small lemon)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 large bunch curly-leaf kale, stemmed and chopped

• Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, mix 1 tsp. coriander, 3/4 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper; rub all over chicken.

• Nestle the chicken, skin side up, in the chickpeas. Roast until juices run clear when poked with a knife, about 8 minutes.
• Transfer the chicken to a plate. Add the kale into the chickpeas. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
• Return the chicken to the skillet and drizzle with EVOO and zest.
