Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Heat a 8” / 20cm skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter 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. Season with some salt and pepper.
  6. Enjoy frittata with broccoli on the side.

Easy to make, but took a lot longer to cook than I expected. This could be because 1 of chicken breasts was double the size of the other ... Also, forgot shredded cheese and used 1 cheese stick instead. Definitely need more cheese next time!

We loved this dish! I stuffed the chicken with mozzarella and a little bit of smoked gruyere which was really delicious. Neither of us cares for steamed broccoli, so I used the roasted broccoli recipe from the Swedish Meatballs (10/16/17). Instead of white wine for the pan sauce, I used 1 part chicken stock and 1 part white vinegar. I also added a side of couscous.

Yummy. I like broccoli, but I'm always looking for ways to dress it up. Garlic and lemon sure does that.

Although I thought the artichoke was a wonderful sub for the cheese in the Original recipe, my SO says it drops to a 3 star rating.
