can you remove orange peel texture?

I want to paint a small wall off my kitchen with chalkboard paint. The trouble is, I have a slight orange peel texture on my walls, which makes for a rough writing surface. Is there an easy way to get that stuff off, or am I looking at skim coating it with drywall compound and sanding smooth? can I do that over a painted wall?

Rough up the painted surface first, then skim coat,sand where needed, prime and topcoat. You might look into primer recommendations from the mfgr of the chalk board paint as well as if two top coats are necessary over the primer.
