Prep and cook the chicken
- Place 1 chicken breast at a time on a large piece of plastic wrap; sprinkle the meat with a few drops of water. Cover with another piece of plastic; flatten with a rolling pin or heavy frying pan to about ½-inch thickness. Remove the plastic. Transfer the chicken to a plate, pat dry with a paper towel, and season with salt and pepper.
- On a plate or shallow bowl, season the arrowroot powder with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [1 to 2 TBL] oil. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate to rest. Add more oil between batches if needed. Do not clean the pan. While the chicken cooks and rests, prepare the greens.
Prep and cook the greens
- Trim the root end from the leek; cut the leek in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Rinse well.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1½ teaspoons [1 TBL]; set aside half for the sauce.
- Set aside half the vegetable broth for the sauce.
While the greens cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Brown the lemons; make the sauce
- Juice half the lemon; thinly slice the remaining half. [Juice 1 lemon; thinly slice the remaining lemon.]
- Coarsely chop the olives.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Juice the lemon.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Garnish the chicken.
