  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 6 oz Green Beans

Prepare the ingredients & make the goat cheese sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the goat cheese sauce

Preheat the oven 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. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out  and discard the pulp and seeds. Cut the squash crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Halve and peel the onion; cut into 1-inch-wide wedges, separating the layers. Halve the grapes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, whisk together the goat cheese and 2 teaspoons of warm water. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Roast the squash
2 Roast the squash

Line 2 sheet pans with foil. Transfer the squash pieces to one sheet pan. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cook the farro
3 Cook the farro

Meanwhile, add the farro to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Roast the vegetables & grapes
4 Roast the vegetables & grapes

Meanwhile, place the green beans and onion wedges on the remaining sheet pan. Drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer. Roast 8 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully add the halved grapes. Return to the oven and roast 8 to 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

5 Cook the chicken

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the za’atar to coat (you may have extra). In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons 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 to a cutting board.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any fond, 1 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. To the pot of cooked farro, add the roasted squash, roasted green beans, onion, and grapes, and pan sauce. Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Slice the cooked chicken crosswise. Serve the sliced chicken over the finished farro. Top the chicken with the goat cheese sauce. Enjoy!
