Lemony Chard and Chicken Skillet

March 10, 2012 at 6:31 am 2 comments

I am back again with another one-pan meal! Swiss chard, lemon, mushrooms and chicken make up this rustic skillet dish that is packed with nutrition.

We ate this alone for a lighter meal but feel free to serve your favorite cooked grain alongside for a bit more bulk…cooked gluten free pasta would also be delicious tossed in along with the lemon juice and fresh herbs!

Lemony Chard and Chicken Skillet

Ingredients

4 tsp brown rice flour
2 (6 oz) chicken breasts, cut in strips or cubes (could probably turkey tenderloin)
1 medium onion, sliced
2 Tbsp refined coconut oil, olive oil, butter or ghee
1/2 cup chicken broth or homemade stock
1 bunch of green swiss chard, de-stemmed and roughly chopped (or kale)
3 garlic cloves
4 oz button mushrooms, sliced
3 shakes of crushed red pepper
Juice from 1/2 lemon (+ 2 tsp lemon zest for more lemon flavor, optional)
3-4 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
3 Tbsp shredded sharp cheese (parmesan, romano, asiago) – can omit for dairy free if needed
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. Toss chicken and onions with brown rice flour and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
2. In a large skillet, heat oil/butter over medium-high heat. Saute chicken and onions for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
3. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Stir in chicken broth and cook for 1 minute.
4. Add mushrooms, greens and crushed red pepper. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes until greens are wilted.
5. Stir in lemon juice, zest and fresh parsley and remove from heat. Transfer to serving dishes and top with 1 1/2 Tbsp of shredded cheese per plate. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Serves 2
