I love turkey in any way, shape or form. I feel the same about Swiss chard or any leafy greens, so I decided to combine the two in this delicious, healthy meal. To complete the dinner, I make extra spice rub and toss it with oil and new potatoes, then roast them in the oven along with the turkey. —Susan Bickta, Kutztown, Pennsylvania
