"I call this an efficient recipe. It takes the farro as long to cook as it does for me to get the rest of the ingredients chopped and assembled. Makes me feel like I've had a healthy meal. So the cook time is actually included in the prep time. :)"

This was a fast and healthy mid-week meal for us. I loved the ease of preparation and how flavorful the chicken was. It was also nice that each person could customize their own bowl. I'm a big fan of farro and loved it for the base of this bowl. Thank you!
