2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and brown the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pot. Meanwhile, start preparing the shallots and sweet potato.


Prep and cook the shallots and sweet potato

  • Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.
In the same pot used for the chicken, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to soften and brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the sweet potato and ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot, until the potato starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the braise

  • Remove and discard any coarse stems from the chard; coarsely chop the leaves and tender stems.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
To the pot with the sweet potato, add the chicken and any accumulated juices, chard leaves and tender stems, tomato sauce base, vinegar blend, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the potato and chard are tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chicken and vegetables to individual plates, garnish with the parsley, and serve.
