    Chicken & Goat Cheese Sauce over Asparagus & Romesco Farro
    Title
    • 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
    • ½ cup Semi-Pearled Farro
    • 6 oz Asparagus
    • 1 Bell Pepper
    • 1 oz Goat Cheese

    1 Prepare the ingredients

    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. Snap off and discard the tough, woody stem ends of the asparagus; cut into 1-inch pieces (keeping the pointed tips intact). Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. In a bowl, whisk together the goat cheese and 1 tablespoon of warm water. Season with salt and pepper.

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the oregano. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 9 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.
