    From the Test Kitchen

    In this dish, simply seared chicken gets irresistibly sweet-hot flavor from a bold, Mexican-style combo of honey, lime juice, and fiery chipotle paste—delightfully tempered by a drizzle of sour cream brightened with fresh lime zest. We’re bringing it all together over a hearty bed of farro mixed with sautéed poblano pepper and juicy fresh tomatoes.

    tips & techniques
    Cook the farro
    1 Cook the farro

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the honey-chipotle sauce

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Halve the tomatoes; place in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 1 teaspoon. Quarter the lime. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the sour cream and lime zest; season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), the juice of 2 lime wedges, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper.

    Cook the fish
    3 Cook the fish

    Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.

    Cook the pepper
    4 Cook the pepper

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to the bowl of seasoned tomatoes.
