Ingredients

  • Kosher salt

  • 3/4

    teaspoon sugar

  • 2 1/2

    pounds bone-in chicken breasts

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 1

    head garlic, halved crosswise, plus 4 cloves, thinly sliced

  • 6

    rosemary sprigs

  • 2

    tablespoons butter, cut into 4 pieces, plus 1 additional tablespoon

  • 1/4

    teaspoon chili flakes

  • 1

    pound chard, stems removed and torn into 1-inch pieces

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Place a rack in bottom third of oven and slide a medium roasting pan onto rack. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season chicken all over with sugar and 1 ½ teaspoons salt. Set a deep, large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and heat until it shimmers. Lay chicken, skin-side down, into hot pan. Once fat begins to render from chicken, after about 1 minute, arrange rosemary and garlic halves, cut-side down, around chicken. Cook until herbs and garlic are aromatic and browned, about 5 minutes. Move aromatics on top of chicken pieces and continue cooking until skin crisps and browns, about 5 minutes more. 3. Carefully remove preheated roasting pan from oven. Use tongs to transfer chicken pieces to roasting pan and arrange skin-side up. Place garlic and herbs on top of breasts once more, leaving drippings behind in skillet. Place a pat of butter on each breast and transfer pan to oven. Roast until meat is just cooked through, 7-10 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, set skillet with drippings back over medium-high heat. Once hot, add sliced garlic and cook, swirling skillet constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chili flakes and cook until aromatic, about 15 seconds. Add greens, toss to coat in drippings, and cook until wilted and tender, about 3 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in remaining butter, season with lemon juice and salt to taste. Arrange chicken, skin-side up, over greens and pour all accumulated juices over top.
