Raise your hand if you want a pleasantly tangy bite of my delicious Greek chicken & farro salad in your mouth! This extremely vibrant dish takes simply seared chicken and elevates it with a coating of earthy, bold oregano over a bed of nutty farro studded with juicy tomatoes, crunchy radishes, and briny olives. Finished with a garnish of crumbled feta cheese, this has got to be the best meal I’ve ever made! Here, check out more pics offering other delicious angles:
Ingredients for the best meal ever
- 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
- ½ cup Semi-Pearled Farro
- 4 oz Grape Or Cherry Tomatoes
- 3 oz Radishes
- 1 Lemon
- 1½ oz Feta Cheese
- 1 clove Garlic
- 1 oz Pitted Niçoise Olives
- 1 tsp Whole Dried Oregano
Recipe for the best meal ever
Fill a medium pot with water; add a pinch of salt. 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.
While the farro cooks, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and half the oregano. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board.
While the chicken cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the lemon crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out the seeds. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester, finely grate into a paste (or use the small side of a box grater). Halve the tomatoes. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the olives.
In a bowl, combine the lemon juice, remaining oregano, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; season with salt and pepper.
To the pot of cooked farro, add the halved tomatoes, sliced radishes, chopped olives, and half the dressing. 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 with the remaining dressing and cheese (crumbling before adding). Enjoy!
