Organic greens from the local farmer's market add extra nutrition to this recipe.


  • 1 tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 med. red onion
  • 4 clove garlic
  • 1/2 c. white wine
  • 1 lbs. kale
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil
  • 6 chicken breast
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste


In a large pot, heat half of the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Season chicken with sea salt and pepper. Add half of the chicken to the pot and cook until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes; transfer to a plate. Cook remaining chicken, adding more coconut oil, if necessary.

Add onion (halved and sliced thin) and mashed garlic to pot and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add wine and chicken (along with accumulated juices) to pot and bring to a boil. Cover pot; reduce heat to medium and cook about 5 minutes.

Place kale (or any other greens you'd like) on top of chicken; season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until chicken is done and greens are wilted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in fresh lemon juice. Serve greens and chicken drizzled with pan juices and lemon wedges on the side.
