recipes: growing grace farm’s mediterranean chicken

This week, I’ve been craving Greek food, and I don’t mean gyros.  I’ve been longing to cook something healthy and delicious in spite of busy schedules and house renovations.  And so tonight, even though we had to leave for my daughter’s chorus performance at 5:45, I whisked together this wonderful meal–it will actually take you less time to prepare it than it does to clean the kitchen!

Growing Grace Farm’s Mediterranean Chicken

Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts, sliced in long thin strips

1 can of artichokes in water

1 cup dried tomatoes presoaked

2 cups of chopped, fresh kale

1/2 yellow onion, chopped

1 large clove of garlic or 2 small cloves, pressed

2 tbsp capers

drizzle of olive oil

kalamata olives and feta or goat cheese to taste

dried or fresh basil and oregano

Preparation:

In saute pan, heat olive oil on medium heat.  Add chopped onion, pressed garlic, and herbs and saute until onions are clear.

Add chicken strips and artichokes.  Turn heat up to med-high.  Pour in either 1/2 cup of artichoke water or dried tomato water.

Saute until chicken is tender but not fully cooked (5 min).  Add dried tomatoes, capers, and olives. Stir.

Turn heat down to med-low and sprinkle chopped kale on top of chicken mixture–DO NOT STIR.

Cover with lid and let steam for a couple of minutes.  Remove lid and toss in some feta or goat cheese.

Makes 4 servings.

I made some polenta as a side dish, and it was quite yummy!
