Make sure that your greens are fresh and well-cleaned! They can have sandy grit on them.
1. In a large pot, start with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and add 1/2 of a large onion, diced, and a couple of cloves of garlic, minced.
2. For that bacon flavor, they tossed in 1/3 C of Hormel real bacon pieces. When this has all sizzled for a few minutes, pour in 1/2 large container of chicken broth or stock.
3. Add a smoked, cooked chicken wing or two (theirs was from a rotisserie chicken from the store).
4. Bring to a boil and drop in your collard greens. Let simmer until they're tender! (Bake a pan of cornbread!). You are now ready for a real treat. Salt and pepper to taste.
