chicken saute with Swiss chard & garlic aioli
I have a foodie confession to make: I’ve never had Swiss chard. I’m not too sure why…I’ve had tons of other greens- kale, spinach, collards, mustard. But, never chard. Weird?
In case you’re like me and you’ve never had it, either I’ll give you the verdict:
It’s good. Think mild spinach.
Place a cornmeal and chili crusted chicken breast over a bed of sauteed Swiss chard along with some garlic/cilantro aioli and reduced fat cheddar cheese. You have a dish that looks like it took all day -or came from a fancy restaurant.
Another awesome thing about this recipe is that cooking it uses the same pan ! I love recipes like that, don’t you?
A few tips I also did while making this that I’ll share:
Pound out the chicken breasts in a sealed heavy duty zip top bag- much neater than plastic wrap.
You can bread the chicken and make the sauce in advance, which will make this great for an easy Monday meal.
