Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the radish, then medium dice. Peel the shallot; quarter lengthwise. Pit and roughly chop the dates. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out the seeds. Add the honey (kneading the packet before opening) and 1 tablespoon of water. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cherry spread and dijionaise.

2 Cook & dress the farro

Add the farro to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Roast the vegetables
3 Roast the vegetables

Meanwhile, transfer the diced radish and quartered shallot to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 15 to 17 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

4 Cook the chicken

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Add the lemon-honey mixture (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently and spooning the liquid over the chicken, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the chicken is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
