YIELDServes 4 ACTIVE TIME35 minutes TOTAL TIME45 minutes INGREDIENTS
    4  chicken legs, (thigh and drumstick; about 3 pounds)
    1 1/2 teaspoons  kosher salt, divided
    1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon  country-style Dijon mustard
    3 tablespoons  vegetable oil
2 pink-skinned apples, cut into 1/2" wedges
    1/2 medium  red onion, cut into 1/2" wedges
    1 cup  dry white wine
    1 1/2 cups  fresh apple cider, divided
    1 large or 2 small bunches  curly kale, (about 1 pound), stemmed, torn into pieces
    1/4 cup  heavy cream
    1 teaspoon  fresh lemon juice
    3 tablespoons  tarragon leaves, (optional)

PREPARATION

Arrange rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 450F. Season chicken all over with 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper, then rub with 1/4 cup mustard, making sure to get mustard under skin.
Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large heatproof high-sided skillet or heavy braising pan over medium-high. Sear chicken, skin side down, until golden-brown, about 8 minutes. Turn chicken, then arrange apples and onion around chicken. Add wine and 1 cup cider, then transfer to oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 165F, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat remaining 1/2 cup cider, 1 Tbsp. oil, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a large pot over medium; add kale, cover, and cook until wilted. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, divide kale among plates.
Transfer chicken, apples, and onion to plates with a slotted spoon. Heat remaining liquid in skillet over high. Add cream and remaining 1 tsp. mustard and bring to a boil. Cook, whisking constantly, until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
Spoon sauce alongside chicken and kale. Garnish with tarragon, if desired.
