Posted: Updated:

4 chicken legs, drumsticks, and thighs-separated
1 Tbsp. paprika
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
1 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
6 garlic cloves, sliced
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup dry white wine
2 sprigs rosemary
2 sprigs thyme
1 large bunch kale, center ribs and stems removed, leaves cut into 1" strips

Sprinkle chicken with paprika; season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add chicken skin side down and cook, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides 8-10 minutes; transfer to a plate.

Add onion and garlic to pot and cook, stirring often, until softened, 8-10 minutes. Return chicken to pot; add broth, wine, and herbs. Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat; simmer until chicken is cooked through, 30-40 minutes.

Add kale to pot. Cover; cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Discard herbs. Serve chicken and kale with lemon wedges.
