Gaucho Chicken With Garlic Lemon Herbs and Sauteed Greens

This meal is a great midday alternative to plain old grilled-chicken salad. And bonus: You’ll have enough to eat tomorrow, too.

  • 2 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • ¼ onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil chopped
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 sliced fresh lemon
  • 2 cups mustard greens, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh or dried thyme
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Combine chicken, garlic, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, orange juice, orange zest, onion, oregano, basil and cumin in a bowl. Allow chicken to marinate for five to 10 minutes. Heat a saute pan over medium heat, then add chicken and lemon slices. Cook until chicken is no longer pink inside. Add remaining olive oil, thyme and greens. Saute until greens are wilted. Serves 2.
