Scrape out the seeds. Sprinkle the inside with a pinch of salt and pepper and brush them inside and out with 3 tbsp. of olive oil. Place the squash flesh side down on a foil lined sheet pan and bake for 30-35 minutes in a 375° F oven until tender and lightly caramelized around the edges. Remove from oven, once cool turn your edible bowls over. Season chicken with a pinch of salt, pepper, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Meanwhile, in a skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat on medium-high and sauté chicken until slightly brown slightly. Set aside once chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165° F. Wipe our pan and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic, peppers and onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes then add the finely cut kale and toss and season with a pinch each of salt, pepper, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. Add rinsed and drained navy beans and broth. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes until kale reaches your desired tenderness. Fill acorn bowls with the chicken and kale filling, sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and place under the broiler for a few minutes until slightly brown. Serve immediately.
