Cook the potatoes
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. Add the potatoes and cook, 11 to 13 minutes, until tender. Drain thoroughly; season well with S&P and spread out on a plate to cool.

Toast the pepitas
While the potatoes cook, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the pepitas and ⅓ of the spice blend. Toast, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown (be careful, the pepitas may pop as they toast). Transfer to a bowl lined with paper towel and immediately season with S&P. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Cook the chicken
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing it against the grain.

Start the salad
While the chicken cooks, in a large bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining ⅔ the apple cider vinegar and ½ the mustard. Add 5 tbsp olive oil, to taste (double for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add the kale and, using your hands, massage the vinaigrette into the kale, 1 to 2 minutes, until wilted.

Make the maple-mustard sauce
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the maple syrup, remaining mustard, remaining vinegar and 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until slightly reduced; season with S&P to taste.

Finish the salad & serve
To the bowl of wilted kale, add the carrots, cabbage, potatoes and ½ the toasted pepitas. Toss well. Divide the kale salad between your plates and top with the chicken. Spoon as much maple-mustard sauce as you’d like over the chicken. Garnish with the remaining toasted pepitas. Bon appétit!
