Chard Chicken

You probably think this version of chard chicken involves a grill…or that I spelled chard wrong. Nope! I just used some chard from my CSA box with some chicken thighs from a local farmer and made something new.  It was amazing! My kids even ate some. Whoa! It turns out that cooked chard is close to broccoli in taste and so my kids, who like cooked broccoli were very receptive to this dinner.  Here’s what I came up with

Chard Chicken


3 tbs olive oil

1 lb of chicken thighs

1 medium onion halved and sliced

3 cloves garlic- crushed and diced

1 bunch of chard- ribbed and de-stemmed chopped into small pieces.

Salt and pepper


1. Preheat frying pan

2. Add oil and onion and chicken. Fry for 5 minutes

3. Add chard amd garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 7-10 minutes. 

4. Eat and enjoy!  This recipe is simple and delicious and sure makes use of that chard that my kids didn’t think they would like.
