Lemon Grilled Chicken with Farro and Wilted Greens is a delicious and super healthy meal that the whole family is going to love! This is a sponsored post in partnership with Cut ‘N Clean Greens.
May is Healthy Vision Month and I have partnered up with my Virtual Potluck bloggers to bring you some amazing healthy and delicious recipes that promote eye health!
Y’all know that healthy isn’t exactly my specialty but I do love greens and I mean all kinds. Collards are probably my favorite, but spinach, kale, mustard you name it, I love them and they are rich in the nutrients that will promote eye health. I’ve been on a farro kick but you could use barley if you can’t find farro in your local market.
For this healthy dinner, I marinated some chicken breasts with lemons, garlic and olive oil and grilled them up. I sautéed mushrooms and onions with garlic and added in cooked farro and then added in the Cut’N Clean Garden Greens and let them wilt. The flavors all came together for a fantastic meal.
The Cut ‘N Clean Greens are washed, cut and ready to use making it so simple to add them to your dinner plans.
