Too salty
5 Stars
Chicken with Farro was awesome, one of the best Munchery meals ever. The chicken was tender and well seasoned. The arugula pesto added a layer of flavor. The farro risotto with mushrooms and parmesan was rich and delicious.
3 Stars
Farro was too soft (I think it was overcooked). I also didn't like the cheese in this dish. Can you please put the cheese in a separate container.
3 Stars
Chicken was good, however barley was apparently substituted for the Farro.
2 Stars
The chicken was not seasoned
3 Stars
Too much Farro. Would have enjoyed instead an added veggie such as green beans, carrots, etc.
3 Stars
This WAS one of my favorite dishes. HAD loved the roasted, MEATY Crimini mushrooms that were good portions and delicious. THIS time, I could BARELY even see the few tiny slices or SLIVERS of flimsy, tasteless mushroom pieces. The chicken was dryer.
5 Stars
Usually I don't like breast meat, but the chicken was NOT dry and was very tender. The toasted farro and roasted, meaty mushrooms were DELICIOUS. I cut the meat into chunks first so they'd pick up llavor from everything else. Ordered again same wk.

Bland and soggy
5 Stars
Chicken was juicy and tender and was great with the garlicky pesto sauce. The Farrow with my and peas had a nice earthy flavor, the perfect accompaniment to the flavorful chicken.

A well balanced, delicious dish. Very filling as well, did not need to finish.
5 Stars
This is consistently one of my favorites. I've never willingly eaten peas in my life but in this dish they are actually enjoyable, not just tolerable. Not sure I've ever had Fargo before but it's a welcome ingredient in this dish.

Skin was very fatty, not crisp at all.

Chicken did not taste grilled. It was so thick with no grill marks, not a fan of the skin being left on either.

The chicken was boiled not grilled. It had zero taste and the farro was mushy. Not at all the quality we are used to from you.

Chicken itself could have used a little more seasoning
2 Stars
The chicken was incredibly bond. No seasoning whatsoever.
5 Stars
So yummy and healthy!
1 Stars
The chicken was not grilled or baked - white, raw and slimy. No crust, color, score marks or toasted edges; mic/wave or steam def. I tried to upload a photo but not allowed: tasted like a sponge. Tossed it, Munch declining fast. Burn rate issues?
4 Stars
The flavor was excellent. Not thrilled about the skin on chicken.

3 Stars
Super salty
4 Stars
Loved the dish. I only wished it came with two more pesto cups. One mini pesto cup was not enough. The pesto sauce was awesome. There just wasn't enough.
3 Stars
Farro was gluey and bland
2 Stars
Just not to my liking. Maybe fine for less picky eaters.
1 Stars
I really like most of Munchery's grilled chicken breast dishes, but this was terrible. Everything was too salty, chicken was too dry and had a weird off-taste, and there was too much cheese in the farro.
5 Stars
The chicken breast was moist, tender and well flavored. Arugula pesto was delicious though I would have like more of it to cover all the chicken. Risotto of farro and mushrooms was a perfect side dish. I would definitely order this again.
