    From the Test Kitchen

    In this flavorful Middle Eastern-inspired recipe, you'll sautéed tender bites of za’atar-coated chicken while roasting a trio of carrots, green beans, and red onion. You’ll then toss the vegetables with warm farro to make a hearty grain salad and finish the dish with a drizzle of creamy labneh mixed with feta cheese.

    • 10 oz Boneless Chicken Breast Pieces
    • ½ cup Semi-Pearled Farro
    • 6 oz Green Beans
    • 6 oz Carrots
    • 1 Red Onion
    • 1½ oz Feta Cheese

    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans; cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces.

    Meanwhile, transfer the carrot pieces, onion wedges, and green bean pieces to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the weeknight hero spice blend.

    Once the vegetables have roasted for about 10 minutes, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the za’atar; toss to coat.
