Rainbow chard is one of my new favorite greens! It’s packed full of goodies and so easy to prepare.
I have several variations for special diets and will include the changes at the end.
Start with your ingredients:
- 2 large or 4 medium chicken breasts
- 2 bunches rainbow chard
- 1/2 large yellow onion
- 4 slices turkey bacon
- a few dashes of red-wine vinegar
- Salt & pepper
Coat a 13×9 casserole dish with olive oil spray. Add chard, and place chicken on top. Cover with Foil.
Bake for 40min at 350 F.
After 40 min, uncover, stir chard a little, and let bake another 10-20min until chicken is cooked through.
This is how it will look when it’s all done. The chard will cook down quite a bit, but it will be oh so tender!
And the smokiness from the turkey bacon combined with the sweetness of the onions will make you a chard believer!
Vegetarian option: omit turkey bacon & chicken, try replacing with smoked soy-sage or smoked tofu. Cooking time will decrease due to lack of chicken.
TSFL Lean, Green Meal: omit onions, add only 1 slice of turkey bacon. Replace onions with onion powder and count as condiment.
Low-sodium: Add only 1 slice turkey bacon, use salt-free seasoning on chicken.
