tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then 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. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash; halve lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Pick the rosemary leaves off the stems. Halve the grapes. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Roughly chop the walnuts. Thinly slice the chives.

Roast the squash
2 Roast the squash

Place the squash pieces on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cook & finish the farro
3 Cook & finish the farro

Meanwhile, add the farro to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Stir in the spinach and creamy mustard sauce until combined and the spinach is wilted. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.   

Prepare the saltimbocca
4 Prepare the saltimbocca

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Separate the prosciutto (removing the plastic lining between the slices). Lay 1/4 of the prosciutto on a work surface, overlapping each slice by 1/2 inch. Top the center of the prepared prosciutto with 1/4 of the rosemary leaves. Place one piece of seasoned chicken on top of the rosemary. Fold the outsides of the prosciutto into the center of the chicken, pressing gently to seal. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto, rosemary leaves, and seasoned chicken.

Coat & cook the saltimbocca
5 Coat & cook the saltimbocca

Place the flour on a large plate. Evenly coat the saltimbocca in the flour (tapping off any excess). In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the coated saltimbocca, sealed side down. Cook 7 to 8 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board. Wipe out the pan.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

6 Make the pan sauce & serve your dish

In the same pan, heat the butter on medium-high until melted. Once melted, cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the foam subsides and the butter is fragrant (it should smell nutty and toasted). Add the halved grapes and sliced shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as it may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, or until the liquid has cooked off. Add the broth (carefully, as it may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat. Halve the cooked saltimbocca lengthwise. Serve the halved saltimbocca topped with the pan sauce. Serve the finished farro topped with the roasted squash and chopped walnuts. Garnish with the sliced chives. Enjoy!
