    • 1 Poblano Pepper
    • 4 oz Mushrooms
    • 1 Shallot
    • 2 cloves Garlic

    Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and finely chop the shallot. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of water.

    Start the farro
    2 Start the farro

    In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped shallot and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the farro. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until toasted and fragrant. Add the red wine vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked off. Carefully add 3 cups of water; season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring frequently, 24 to 26 minutes, or until the farro is tender and most of the liquid has cooked off. Turn off the heat. Cover to keep warm.

    Meanwhile, line a sheet pan with foil. Place the mushroom pieces and diced pepper on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 9 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.

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