COOK’S TIP: Quickly make stale bread by drying out the pieces in a 300°F oven for 15 minutes before adding them to the skillet.
2 tbsp. olive oil
8 small chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)
1 large orange, cut into 6 wedges
8 oz. stale bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 5-ounce package baby kale mix
Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook skin-side down until the skin is golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet skin-side up and scatter the orange wedges around the chicken. Roast until the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, discard all but 2 tablespoons fat from the skillet and return to low heat. Add the bread to the skillet and toss in the fat to coat, then sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, tossing the bread occasionally, until crisp and lightly golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the pan.
Return the pan to medium-low heat, add the lemon juice to the pan and cook, scraping up all the brown bits, for 1 minute. Remove from heat, squeeze the roasted orange wedges into the pan, add the Dijon mustard and the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and whisk to combine.
Add the kale mix to the skillet along with the croutons and toss to coat. Serve with the chicken.
