I wanted to try something different with the contents of my fridge, so here I go.
Chicken thighs were on sale, I still wash it with vinegar despite the organic and no hormone labels. I cut some of the fat off too, because you just want some there for the crisp factor but they do have a bit much.
This is farro, a wheat based grain that is pretty hearty and I’ve just learned about it. You can cook it like rice, with a 2:1 ratio for about 25 minutes.
Bake in oven 350 for about 30 min. If you want to use chicken breasts, you should make this without the farro, and you may only need 15 min if they are boneless. You can also simmer on stove if it’s too hot for the oven.
Top with some fresh parsley, lemon zest, or parmigiana.
It came out well, but I prefer the brussel sprouts crispy, here they were just like cabbage. Next time I may try kale.
