In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine 2 1/4 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon PeachDish Salt. When liquid comes to a simmer, stir in the grits, stirring continuously as the liquid returns to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15-20 minutes. Using a whisk or flat-edged wooden spoon, stir along the bottom every 5 minutes or so to prevent the grits from scorching. When grits are creamy and tender, turn off the heat, cover the pot and let rest on the stove 10-15 minutes. Stir in butter, and season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
While grits cook prepare your mise en place: Remove stems from kale, and chop finely; cut or tear leaves into bite-size pieces. Peel and thinly slice garlic. Thinly slice dried tomatoes. Cut chicken breasts lengthwise into thirds.
Season chicken pieces on all sides with a total 1/2 teaspoon PeachDish Salt.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add 1 teaspoon cooking oil. When the oil is shimmering add chicken pieces in a single layer. Cook without turning or stirring until browned on the first side, about 2-3 minutes. Flip the chicken pieces, and cook on the opposite side until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes more. Remove chicken to a plate, and cover to keep warm.
Add remaining 1 teaspoon cooking oil and kale stems to the pan. Cook while stirring until they begin to become translucent, 2-3 minutes.
Reduce heat to low, and stir in garlic and dried tomatoes. Add kale leaves and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook until kale leaves have wilted, 3-4 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired with remaining PeachDish Salt.
Divide kale mixture between 2 plates, and top with chicken pieces. Spoon grits on the side. Enjoy!
