This easy dish is perfect for a casual get-together with friends. Cumin, saffron, and oregano season rich chicken thighs and nutty farro as the dish simmers. If using saffron, deploy it sparingly; those tiny threads bring subtle flavor and a little color to the dish, but too much will yield a medicinal taste. Serve with a side salad to complete the meal.
How to Make It
Combine chicken, vinegar, black pepper, 1 teaspoon oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl, turning to coat chicken on all sides. Let stand 20 minutes; drain.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high. Add 6 chicken thighs to pan in a single layer; cook until well browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate. Repeat process with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining 6 chicken thighs.
Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, bell peppers, and garlic to pan; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in saffron (if using), cumin, 1 teaspoon oregano, and 1 teaspoon salt; cook 1 minute. Stir in stock, farro, and tomatoes. Increase heat to high; bring to a boil. Return chicken and accumulated juices to pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook until chicken is done, about 20 minutes.
Stir in olives. Cook, uncovered, until farro is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 8 minutes. Stir in peas; cook until peas are tender, about 3 minutes.
