The fresh flavors of the wheat berry tomato salad pair perfectly with the chipotle chicken in this dish. If preferable, you can substitute cooked farro or barley.
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 3/4 cup wheat berry salad)
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Arrange tomatoes in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until tomatoes are wrinkled and tender.
3. Combine parsley and basil in a small bowl. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the herb mixture.
4. Bring 8 cups water and wheat berries to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until wheat berries are tender but still chewy. Drain; rinse with cold water. Drain. Combine wheat berries, 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and pepper in a large bowl; toss. Reserve 3 1/2 cups wheat berry mixture. Add tomatoes and remaining 1 cup herb mixture to remaining 1 1/2 cups wheat berry mixture; toss well to combine.
5. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Remove 4 teaspoons adobo sauce and 1 chile from can of chiles. Chop chile. Reserve remaining chiles and sauce for another use. Combine remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, adobo sauce, chopped chile, and honey in a medium bowl. Add chicken; toss to coat. Add chicken to pan; grill 5 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with wheat berry salad and lime wedges.
