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. Drain thoroughly.

2 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

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. Zest the lime to get 1 teaspoon (or use the small side of a box grater). 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 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, 1/4 cup of water, 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.

3 Cook the pepper

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons 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. Wipe out the pan.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 3 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the chicken, 2 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

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