Prep

  1. Cheese / Onions / Garlic / Broccoli - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating before continuing with prep.) Prep as directed and store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Chard - Chop stems and leaves. Store separately. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Make frittata base - Whisk eggs with milk, salt, and pepper. Fold in cheese.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Heat a 8” / 20 cm skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter (portion for frittata) and then onions and chopped chard stems to melted butter with some salt. Saute until onions are slightly golden and caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Fold in chard leaves and saute until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in egg mixture and stir until everything is evenly distributed. Transfer to the oven and bake for 18 to 25 minutes, until a knife comes out cleanly.
  5. Once frittata is in the oven, toss oil with garlic and broccoli. Spread out on a sheet pan. Roast, shaking pan halfway through cooking, until broccoli is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. When broccoli is finished, toss with lemon juice and butter (portion for broccoli). Season with some salt and pepper.
  7. Slice frittata and enjoy with broccoli on the side.

We loved this just as much the second time! Can't wait for leftovers.

I found this to be a bit salty (may be my fault) and not as flavorful as I wanted. I made several modifications that may messed things up a bit. I used red wine instead of white (what I had) and the sauce didn't thicken up much. I may have skimped on the cheese a bit too. Had sauteed spinach instead of broccoli. Orzo was a bit bland. stuffing the chicken and wrapping in prosciutto was not as hard as I imagined.

This was very good! I wish I would have done something more to flavor up the inside of the chicken though, maybe some extra spices?

This was very good. The chicken took 5 - 10 minutes longer than expected.

This was very good but on the heavy side with the added protein. Used sherry because we didn't have white wine - it was good but will say it didn't really "go" with spinach and artichokes.
