Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Heat a 8” / 20 cm skillet over medium-high heat (for 4 servings, adjust skillet size if customizing). 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. While frittata is cooking, place garlic and broccoli into a microwave-safe dish. Cover with a damp paper towel and cook for 2-1/2 to 4 minutes, until broccoli gets to desired tenderness. Toss with lemon juice and butter (portion for broccoli). Season with some salt and pepper.

  6. Enjoy frittata with broccoli on the side.

This was a hit! So good! Came out perfectly (cooked the chicken for 8 mins). It was a bit salty so will either skip the salt or use much less. Made the broccoli in the air fryer. Definitely a keeper!

I wrapped the chicken in bacon, which was very good. Maybe not enough cheese filling to make a difference. We also had winter squash on the side, which was a delicious combo.

This was good but splitting chicken breasts down the center was fiddly. I used pepperjack cheese, which was delicious, but a lot of it melted into the pan and then curdled in the pan sauce. Maybe that's because I used lemon juice and a little vinegar in place of the wine. My husband LOVED this so we will probably make it again. Overall, after the splitting and stuffing and wrapping, this was super quick and easy.

Very good. The prosciutto was super hard to use without it tearing apart, but the meal was amazing.

this was delicious - our chicken breasts were frozen and seasoned and overall it ended up a LITTLE salty, but still really tasty! I felt like the sauce was a bit of a hat-on-a-hat, it wasn't really needed. The broccoli was very good, we were both surprised by the microwaving, but it was a good process, actually. served with rice.

This was well like by the kids - but not so amazing to be worth the prep time.
