Ingredients

  • 1 lb Swiss chard
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 sweet red peppers sliced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 4 cups fusilli pasta (12 oz/375 g)
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Cut chard into ribs and leaves; chop each and set aside separately.

Slice chicken across the grain into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; cut crosswise in half. In large skillet, heat half of the oil over high heat; cook chicken, stirring often, for 4 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium-high; cook onion, garlic, red peppers and chard ribs for 5 minutes or until softened. Return chicken to pan. Add vinegar, rosemary and chard leaves; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until chard is wilted.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender but firm; drain well and return to pot. Add chard mixture and toss to combine.

Whisk cornstarch into stock; add to skillet and cook over high heat, whisking, until thickened. Stir into pasta. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
