Milly's Cook

With this recipe I renew the blog, since I haven't updated it since 2013! But that's how I am!
I like the news, I go headlong into it and after a while I move on to something else.
Now I come back here with a new section: the office card.
I have been dining in the office for about six years now and taking my meal from home. Let's say I have some experience :)
And since I am also a bit "lousy", I am not satisfied with a sandwich or white rice, but I prepare a real lunch with first, second and side dish!
Many times it may seem laborious, but it is not, rather it is all a matter of organization.

Then. I prepare a weekly list of the main meals of the day, I shop on Saturdays and take everything I need for the following week: meat, fish, vegetables, eggs, legumes and fruit! Meat and fish I divide them into portions and freeze.

In this way I derive these advantages:
- I manage to have a balanced diet because I establish how many times a week I want to eat meat, how many times fish, how many vegetables, etc.
- I don't have to worry about what to cook, what's in the fridge, what to buy and risking running out of water
- I don't waste time shopping during the week, dedicating that time to other interests :)

At this point you might think I'm crazy. and you might be right! :) ahahahha

Let's move on to the facts. this is what I eat today:

- 100 gr of spelled
- 1 boneless chicken leg (with or without skin)
- 2 slices of pumpkin
- 1 tablespoon of black olives
- extra virgin olive oil for dressing
- Rosemary
- garlic
- salt and pepper


You can prepare this dish the night before.
Turn on the oven to 220 & # 176, prepare two trays, in one place the chicken slices seasoned with salt and a little oil, in the other the fairly thick slices of pumpkin seasoned with oil, salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary.
When the oven reaches the temperature, bake and cook.

In a saucepan, boil the water, add the salt and cook the farro.

Meanwhile, have a quiet dinner.

Have you finished dinner? Good! Shred the chicken and pumpkin. Pour the spelled, chicken and black olives into a container. Jumbled up. Add the pumpkin last. Season with a drizzle of oil.

The dish is ready for tomorrow! :)

I accompanied this dish with the stewed chard I had prepared for dinner.


Let's start preparing this recipe by recovering the chicken fillets. After removing any fatty parts, cut them into thin strips.

Now heat a grill pan or a plate for grilling the meat, after having lightly greased it with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

When the plate is very hot, grill the chicken, seasoning it with a few pinches of salt and a pinch of ground black pepper. We periodically turn the meat in order to cook it evenly on both sides.

Once the chicken has been prepared, transfer the meat to a plate and let it cool to room temperature.

While the chicken fillets are cooling down, let's focus on the other ingredients. We then take the fresh Greek feta and drain it of the whey in which it is usually kept immersed. Then cut it into cubes of about 1cm per side and put everything aside.

We then recover the cherry tomatoes, wash them and cut them in half.

Then wash the courgette and pass it with a large mesh grater in order to reduce it into thin threads (if you do not have a suitable grater you can cut it 'à la julienne' with a normal knife).

Finally, squeeze the lime and collect the juice.

Now that we have all the ingredients, we just have to prepare our farro salad. First of all, pour the cereal (cooked and properly drained) into a large bowl.

Now add the chopped cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and grated courgette.

Season with a pinch of salt, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and lime juice. We then mix everything to flavor.

Then transfer the spelled salad to a serving dish and complete by distributing the grilled chicken. Before serving, let it rest in the refrigerator for about ten minutes. Here is the recipe for the spelled salad with grilled chicken and Greek feta. You just have to enjoy it now or transfer it to a transport tray for your daily lunchbox.
