Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 4 cups swiss chard, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp feta cheese

Instructions

  • Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and sprinkle with all the spices, garlic powder thru pepper.  
  • Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken thighs and cook for about 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 170ยบ F.  Remove chicken from pan and cover with foil.
  • Add another tbsp of olive oil to the pan and add the minced fresh garlic.  Cook for one minute then add tomatoes.  Cook tomatoes for about 3 minutes.  They will start to soften and release juices.
  • Add swiss chard to pan and stir until the chard starts to wilt down.  Cook for about 3 more minutes.
  • Add chicken and any juices back to pan.  Top with feta and serve alongside quinoa, whole wheat pasta or cauliflower rice.
