This complete meal is simple to prepare and packed with flavor and nutrition. Use kale or spinach instead of the Swiss chard, if you like. Or substitute chicken legs or quartered breasts for the thighs, too.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then arrange 4 of the thighs in the skillet. Cook, flipping once, until deep golden brown all over, about 10 minutes total. Transfer chicken to a large plate; repeat process with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining thighs.

Once all of the thighs are browned and transferred to the plate, add onions, mushrooms and millet to the same skillet and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in wine, broth, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Nestle chicken into skillet, submerging it in the millet and vegetables; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until chicken is almost cooked through, about 25 minutes. Uncover skillet and gently stir in chard. Cover skillet and cook until millet and chard are tender and chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes more.

Spoon chicken, millet and vegetables onto plates and serve.
