1) In a heavy cast iron pot over medium heat, add olive oil and onions, cook for 2 minutes stirring often. Season with salt and pepper.
2) Add the collard greens and chicken stock, reduce heat to low and cover tightly, then cook for 45 minutes over low heat until softened.

3) Transfer the Collard Greens to a serving plate and serve.

Be sure to cook over low heat and make sure the liquid is not evaporating too quickly or the greens will burn. A tight-fitting lid will help keep the moisture in.
