From the Test Kitchen

For this hearty, Italian-style dish, we’re featuring vibrant, earthy oregano in two ways: half is used coat our chicken before it sears in the pan, while the other half is added to a light sauce made with fresh tomatoes served on top. It all comes together over a hearty bed of farro and sautéed zucchini, finished with a touch of smooth crème fraîche and parmesan cheese.
