Make

  1. Heat a large skillet with cooking oil over medium heat. Add chicken thighs and cook on both sides until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes total. Set aside and return pan to heat.
  2. Add olive oil and then mushrooms to heated skillet. Saute until mushrooms are dark golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes (don't rush this step - the mushrooms will develop more flavor the longer they cook). Add Italian seasoning and some salt and saute for 1 minute more.
  3. Add butter and stir until melted. Stir in shallots and chard stems and saute until shallots are soft, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Pour stock over mushrooms and stir in chard leaves. Simmer for 1 minute, until chard leaves are tender.
  5. Add chicken back to pan and spoon mushrooms and chard over top. Leave on heat to let chicken warm back up, 1 minute more. Add lemon juice and season with some salt.
  6. Serve chicken with chard and mushrooms spooned over top. Enjoy!

I accidentally used a prepackaged gnocchi that had cheese sauce that was pretty much ready to be consumed without additional ingredients but it turned out SO GOOD with the chard and mushrooms!

We really liked this recipe! We had chard to use from the garden and this turned out really well. Served with some garlic bread on the side

Just not a fan of chard. Will look for a good substitution next time.

Really enjoyed this one. We doubled the mushrooms and sauteed the gnocchi before adding the chard/shroom mix. Love it.

Surprisingly good! Used only 1/2 cup stock and added a splash of white wine. Also added some garlic. Delicious!
