  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken and let sit to brown, about 5 minutes. Add jalapeno and the juice from 1 lime wedge. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink, 5 to 10 minutes more.

  • Add bok choy and water to the skillet. Cook until bok choy is slightly reduced in size, 1 to 3 minutes. Add cooked farro and juice of remaining lime wedge, stirring until well mixed. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, and sesame seeds. Cook until flavors have combined, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

For a much spicier dish, you can use a habanero pepper.
