Sautéed Rosemary Chicken Thighs with Chard

sautéed rosemary chicken thighs with chardI use a Moroccan Tagine to make my sautéed rosemary chicken thighs with chard, but any deep chef’s pan will work; however the Tagine does produce a tender chicken thigh with enormous flavor. Aromatic spices and loads of organic vegetables and herbs make this dish a nutritious and delicious entree. Serve with rice, pasta or my wonderful Saffron Quinoa. Enjoy!
