Do you have a fall back dinner? You know, a tried and true recipe. One you really enjoy making, that’s easy, and that you can always count on to be good?

Oddly, I only have a handful, since I’m constantly creating new recipes for HBH (or other projects). I rarely repeat recipes once they’ve been posted. Which is kind of sad, since I have SO many favorite recipes that I love so much on the blog. Maybe I should start revamping some of the older recipes from way back in the day (like the 1st year or so), and show them some love?

Would you guys be into that? Like retro HBH recipes that are revamped to be easier, better,…and probably prettier too?

Hmm, my wheels are now spinning. Let me know your thoughts!

Anyway, what I’m getting at is this, while I may not have fall back recipes, I do have fall back cooking methods. And one skillet and done dinners are my all time favorites. I have a few them on the blog. And from what I can see, you guys love these skillet dinners too!

This Greek chicken came to be for two reasons.

One, I had just finished up a day of writing. And while I probably should have kept my head buried in my computer screen. I simply couldn’t look at my screen anymore. So naturally, the first thing I decided to do was cook.

Two, it was late. I had very little in my fridge, other than some wilting spinach, herbs, and chicken. I knew it was a skillet dinner kind of night. All of the ingredients I had on hand felt very Mediterranean. So Greek…ish chicken with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and farro it was.

I based the chicken seasoning off of my favorite Greek chicken recipe and then pan seared it before adding in the farro. I debated for a while about whether or not I should use farro or quinoa. But in the end, I wanted to use something a little different. If you’re unfamiliar with Farro, it’s a Mediterranean grain that’s very similar to rice. I like to think of it as a chewier rice with a bit more flavor. It’s delicious, healthy, and hearty. Of course, you can use quinoa, or even regular rice, in place of the farro. The cooking times will be similar. But I’m encouraging you to be a little different, and to give the farro a try.

Promise it’s good.

So add in the farro, along with plenty of sun-dried tomatoes and fresh spinach. Then stir in the chicken broth and transfer everything to the oven to finish cooking. Once the chicken is done, your farro will be fluffy, and your kitchen will smell amazing. Finish the dish off with fresh lemon juice, a good amount of feta cheese, and toasted pine nuts.

Simple, but so good, and very healthy too!

Here’s what I can tell you. If I wasn’t making new recipes all day, everyday, I’d be making this Greek chicken once or twice a week. It’s that good.

Also? The leftovers make for a great salad and are soooo goooood when stuffed into fresh pitas. Add a tzatziki and all of the sudden your leftovers become a gyro. Cool. Cool.

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, the chicken, balsamic vinegar, dill, oregano, paprika, garlic, and a large pinch of both salt and pepper. Toss well to evenly coat the chicken. 
    3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large dutch oven or cast iron skillet, set over medium high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the chicken and sear on both sides until golden, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
    4. To the same skillet, add the farro. Cook 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken broth, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over high heat and stir. Slide in the chicken and any juices left on the plate back into the skillet. Transfer to the oven and roast for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the farro becomes soft.
    4. Serve the chicken topped with feta, dill, and pine nuts.

  1. I have made this with chicken and loved all the flavours. I’d like to try to make a vegetarian version. What do you think would be the best substitution for chicken- chick peas, tofu or…?

  2. 4 stars
    This was very tasty. I had way too much liquid so I took the chicken out when it was done and added some orzo to the farro to absorb the liquid. I love feta but found that it was not really necessary in this recipe as the dish is already uber savory. Maybe a light sprinkle would work. Also, I used bone in chicken thighs and next time I will use boneless skinless as it came out a little greasu and the skin did not crisp up well.

    1. Hey Katy,
      Wonderful!! I love to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks for making it and your feedback! xT

    Made 1 serving of this. Left out dill ( not my fav) I would add more spinach next time. I used Orzo since I didn’t have farro and it worked great

    I started making this dish last fall & it has become a family fav. I was asked to make it tonight!
    I have to swap feta for vegan Greek coz I can’t even look at ANY cheese w/o consequences but it’s still a hit here in my Tuscan household. Thank you for putting this out into the world!

    1. Hi Hayley,
      Sure, that should work well for you! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope it’s delish! xT

    Flavors were great. Simple weeknight meal. I also had a problem with too much liquid (followed recipe exactly). Had to take out chicken and allow farro to cook longer to absorb all the liquid. Came out just a bit overcooked. Not terrible though. Will make again and adjust the liquid.

    1. Hey Lindsay,
      Wonderful!! I love to hear that you have been enjoying this recipe and appreciate your notes and feedback! xT

    I made this tonight and it was excellent! Substituted kale and barley and added capers! I didn’t have all the spices so I just used Italian seasoning blend. I would definitely make this again and it was easy cleanup!

    1. Hi Vee,
      Happy Friday!!😎 I am thrilled to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it and your review! xT

    1. Hey Glenda,

        Hi. I’m going to try this tonight. When you put the skillet in the oven, is it covered or uncovered? I noticed a few comments saying there was too much liquid. Wondering if covering it would help absorb?

    1. Hey Megan,
      Yes, you are going to drain the sun-dried tomatoes. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xx

  7. The recipe says that it makes 6 servings using one pound of chicken. That would be 2.6 oz per serving, so I assume you intend this to serve 3 people (5.3 oz)? I usually allow 6 oz per person. Maybe you do it differently?

    1. Hey Joan,
      I think it depends on your eaters, but with the farro I am usually able to get 6 servings:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  8. Hi Tieghan!

    I am making this tonight but for 8 people – might be a bit hard to do all in one skillet. Is it ok if I roast the chicken separately on a sheet pan (i’ve marinated it as specified above) and make the farro separately in the skillet as described above? will the ratios of chicken stock, etc remain the same, and will it still taste good?


    1. Hi there,
      Sorry to hear there was too much liquid for you, was there anything you may have adjusted? Let me know how I can help! xT

  9. Great recipe! Used skinless thighs. Wanted to ask what you recommend, boneless skinless thighs or bone in? Thank you.

    1. Hey Lee,
      Happy Friday!!⛄️ Thanks so much for making this dish and sharing your review, so glad to hear it was a hit! I like to use small skin on, bone in thighs if I’m using thighs. xx
