On The Menu - Chicken and Chard

From Brenda's 'I Hate To Cook' Kitchen 
Chicken and Chard 

Hi and welcome to my I Hate to Cook kitchen. I do love to eat. FDW does most of the cooking in our house, but once in a while I get hungry for something he doesn’t make. As you know, I like quick and easy. I also like ingredients that he never thinks about using. This simple chicken dish is a prime example. 

Chicken breasts
Minced garlic
Olive oil
Fresh red chard

I don’t use salt when I cook. No judgements here…use it if you need it.

The amount you need of each item above is going to depend on how many you’re going to feed and how much you like the seasoning. For two of us, two large breasts and a tablespoon of garlic works. Remember that chard will cook down and a handful will practically disappear, so don’t be stingy.

Chop the red stems of the chard into one-inch pieces. Heat the olive oil and sauté the garlic and the red stems for about five minutes. Add the chicken breasts. Season with cumin and pepper. Cook until done. Add the green part of the chard, torn into pieces. Cover and simmer until the chard is done. The red chard gives the chicken great color.

Once your tummy is full, you can relax with a good book. I’d like to recommend a light-hearted suspense, Sleeping with the Lights On.

A secret admirer, a redheaded stalker, and an eccentric millionaire throw Sandra Holiday on a dangerous path.

About Brenda: Brenda and her husband are gypsies at heart having lived in six states and two countries.

It's always fun to see one of my recipes...since cooking isn't my thing.
