Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
2 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 8 ounces total)
1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
8 cups torn mixed greens (such as mustard, beet, kohlrabi, kale, collard, and/or turnip greens) (8 to 10 ounces)
Balsamic vinegar (optional)
Red sweet pepper slices (optional)


Lightly coat a medium skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Lightly sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Add chicken to hot skillet; cook until chicken is brown, turning once. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.


Meanwhile, in a large saucepan or Dutch oven combine broth, garlic, crushed red pepper, and the 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to boiling. Stir in greens; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 9 to 12 minutes or just until greens are tender, stirring once or twice.


To serve, divide the greens and their juices between 2 dinner plates. Cut chicken diagonally into slices; arrange chicken slices on top of greens. Drizzle the chicken with balsamic vinegar and if desired, garnish with sweet pepper.
