Heart Healthy Chicken Thighs with Farro Recipe
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, vinegar, black pepper, 1 tsp of the thyme and 1/4 tsp of the salt. Marinate, covered and chilled, for 20 minutes.
In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs, in batches, and cook until well browned on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Reduce heat to medium and add onion, bell pepper and garlic and sauté until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the cumin, remaining 1 tsp thyme and remaining 3/4 tsp salt. Add chicken stock, farro and tomatoes. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
Add the chicken thighs. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until chicken is done, about 30 minutes, or until farro is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Stir in peas and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.
