Prep the chard stalks and leaves: Rinse out the Swiss chard leaves thoroughly. Either tear or cut away the thick stalks from the leaves.
Cut the stalk pieces into 1-inch pieces. Chop the leaves into inch-wide strips. Keep the stalks and leaves separate.
Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan on medium high heat. Add garlic slices, and cook for about 30 seconds, or until the garlic is fragrant.

Add the chopped leaves: Add the chopped chard leaves, toss with the oil and garlic in the pan. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 more minutes. Turn the leaves and the stalks over in the pan.
If the chard still needs a bit more cooking (remove a piece and taste it), cover and cook a few more minutes.
