How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the farro according to package directions, using the broth instead of water.  While the farro is cooking, season the chicken as desired.  Sprinkle the chicken with the paprika.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook until well browned and cooked through, stirring occasionally.  Remove the chicken from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

Step 2

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic and cook and stir for 30 seconds.  Add the asparagus and cook for 3 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add the wine to the skillet and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.  Stir in the soup and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Stir in the farro and heat though.  Stir in the cheese.  Season to taste.  Serve the chicken over the farro mixture.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note:  Farro comes in three varieties, whole grain, semi-pearled and pearled.  Whole grain means the whole seed is intact.  Pearling means that some or all of the outer layer, the bran, has been removed.  Whole grain takes the longest to cook, pearled the shortest.  This recipe calls for pearled, so if you use a different variety, you may need to adjust the cook time and the amount of broth.
  • How to choose asparagus: When choosing fresh asparagus, look for spears that are firm (should feel like they will snap if you bend them) and tips that are tightly closed and not mushy. Thick or thin spears are really a matter of preference, with thin tending to be more tender. Just make sure that you trim the bottoms if they are dried out or woody.
