Pappardelle with Chicken and Winter Greens

Total Time
1 hr

This bright-tasting pasta makes good use of radicchio and chard, two sturdy greens that are packed with vitamins and flavor. Prep and Cook Time: 1 hour. Notes: If you like your chard tender rather than tender-crisp, cook it longer in step 2 (fish out a piece from the pan and taste it).

Pappardelle with chicken and winter greens (1009)

Leo Gong, Randy Mon
 1 bunch (1 lb.) green Swiss chard
 1/2 medium head radicchio
 1 medium lemon
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
 1/3 cup dry sherry
 1/3 cup heavy cream
 1 cup freshly shredded asiago cheese, divided
 3 cups shredded white and dark chicken meat (from one 2 1/2- to 3-lb. rotisserie chicken)
  Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 8 ounces dried pappardelle pasta
Step 1

Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, trim stems and ribs from chard (save for another use, such as soup, if you like). Cut leaves crosswise into 1/3-in.-wide ribbons. Peel any rubbery outer leaves from radicchio and cut out tough core; discard both. Slice remaining leaves crosswise into 1/3-in.-wide ribbons. Zest lemon and set aside zest. Juice lemon and set aside 3 tbsp. juice.

Step 2

Heat olive oil in a 12-in. frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until just translucent, about 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high. Add chicken broth, sherry, chard, radicchio, and lemon zest. Turn to coat and cook until chard is just tender to the bite, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cream and half the cheese; stir to combine. Stir in chicken and cook until warmed through. Stir in lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cook pappardelle in boiling water according to package directions. When pasta is cooked, drain and add to frying pan; use tongs to combine. Transfer pasta to a serving bowl, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and serve.
