Scott Phillips

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups cooked pearled farro (cook according to package directions)
  • 4 oz. chicken breast, grilled
  • 3/4 cup chopped roasted Broccolini

    we followed this recipe exactly and my husband and I really, really enjoyed it! A keeper in our books. The farro was the perfect grain for this and the garlic slivers on top with the glaze just really added to the entire dish. We will be making this again

    Wonderful combination. Reduced the grain from 1.5 cups to .5 and found it was ample. That helped bring the calories per serving into a reasonable range.
