The tangy, bold taste of Mustard Greens pair well with our Roasted Chicken. This complete meal of Roasted Chicken with Mustard Greens produces juicy and tender meat, while the greens are a welcome departure from salads.
2 skin-on, bone-in chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
Sprinkle chicken evenly with paprika, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken, flesh sides down; cook 5 minutes. Turn chicken over; cook 2 minutes. Place pan in oven. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until done. Let stand 5 minutes.
Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add broth and sugar to pan; cook 3 minutes or until broth almost evaporates. Add greens to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

I just cooked the greens from this recipe.. The recipe was exactly what i was looking for as far as ingredients, prep and cook time, & flavors. And as anticipated, they were delicious.. But beautiful as well (prob. since i used mixed greens). Thank you much *
We absolutely LOVED this recipe. I would compare it to something we would order at an upscale restaurant. Everything is so juicy and tender, and the mustard greens are a welcome departure from salads and the like.
Chicken was very moist and I liked the technique of searing then baking at high heat. We also liked the greens/onion blend. Served with the Mashed Potato Casserole recipe also from the Oct. '13 issue. Overall it was what my rating implies: a good solid recipe I will make again for the family.
I thought this was a pretty good meal (made the suggested Cumin & Chili Rice); a baked sweet potato would've also complemented the chicken and greens nicely. I especially liked the mustard greens. The only change I made was using smoked paprika instead of regular. Will be making again.
