From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s dish pays homage to the flavors of Greek-American cooking. We’re basting our chicken with a sweet, peppery, and smoky sauce—spooning the sauce on top of the chicken as it cooks, allowing the flavors to sink in. We’re also featuring an exciting array of seasonal vegetables: sweet peppers in our farro salad, dressed with red wine vinegar and olive oil, along with roasted eggplant topped with feta and marinated vegetables.

Cook the farro:
1 Cook the farro:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat a medium saucepan of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 16 to 18 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the saucepan.

While the farro cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the eggplant crosswise into ½-inch-thick rounds. Cut off and discard the pepper stems. Halve the peppers lengthwise; remove and discard the ribs and seeds. Thinly slice crosswise. Cut the chives into ½-inch pieces. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. Quarter the tomatoes. Peel the cucumber, leaving alternating strips of skin intact; halve lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Thinly slice crosswise. Peel the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash to flatten. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, garlic, and half the vinegar. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
