    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. In this flavorful Middle Eastern-inspired recipe, za’atar-coated chicken roasts alongside a trio of carrots, sugar snap peas, 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 smoky harissa paste.
