This meal comes from Giada DeLaurentiis on Everyday Italian. I have been wanting to make this recipe for some time now, so I was excited to be actually trying it out! I made Roasted Chicken with Balsamic Vinaigrette. I served this over Farro (an ancient Italian grain) and made Roasted Carrots on the side.
This meal was so simple and so delicious. The chicken had a great taste to it. Giada uses pieces of a whole chicken in this recipe, but I just bought chicken breasts since it was only my sister and I. Also, we are not fans of dark meat. It came out great and I would definitely make this again!
This was my first time experimenting with Farro. I have had a package of it in my cabinet since last summer and I FINALLY pulled it out. I’m glad I did because I will be pulling it out more frequently. The farro had a great taste…very nutty & chewy. You have to try it!
