    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 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. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest 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 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.

    4 Cook & glaze the chicken

    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. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.
