  3. Heat remaining three tablespoons of olive oil in skillet and add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minutes.
  4. Add kale, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and reserved pasta water. Cook until kale is tender, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add cooked chicken, and pasta. Stir to coat, and serve immediately.
  6. Enjoy!
