    tips & techniques
    Cook the farro
    1 Cook the farro

    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 and return to the pot.

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onion. Halve the tomatoes. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the garlic paste as you'd like; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Roughly chop the peppers.

    Cook the chicken
    3 Cook the chicken

    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 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer the chicken to a cutting board and loosely cover with foil. 

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

    Cook the vegetables
    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the zucchini pieces and diced onion in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat.
