Paprika chicken with garlicky swiss chard and a side salad.

My dinner was full of greens and there are very little ingredients to this, but lots of flavor.
Ingredients :
1 lb chicken tenderloins
Paprika
Salt & pepper
Olive oil
1 bag frozen organic swiss chard
1 tbsp minced garlic

In a large pan with sides add  whole chicken tenderloins and olive oil, paprika to coat, salt & pepper. Cook on medium heat approximately 5-7 minutes.
Turn tenderloins over cover with paprika and salt & pepper cook an additional 5-7 minutes.
Add bag of frozen kale and garlic.
Cover and cook another 5- 7 minutes.
Once the Swiss chard is wilted and all the flavors have married, it’s done!

For my side salad I made a simple vinegarette with balsamic,  dijon mustard and vinegar.
