This dish gets its Southern charm from a mixture of Deep South favorites: collard greens, beans, and bacon. Also, with chicken on top, you definitely can't go wrong with this perfect weeknight meal. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine oil, cider vinegar, tarragon, thyme, and pepper in a bowl. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add beans, cooking liquid, and chicken; cook 5 minutes. Add vinegar mixture; toss.

Step 2

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon; crumble. Add onion, garlic, and butter to drippings in pan; sauté 3 minutes. Add collard greens, salt, and sugar; cook 3 minutes. Top collard greens mixture with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with bacon and hot pepper vinegar, if desired.
