Taco Filling

1 tsp olive oil
1 T Diced Onion

1 Clove of garlic

¾ Cup of Shredded Kale

¾ Cup Cooked Farro

¾ Cup of Cooked Chicken Breast (Supermarket rotisserie chicken works great!)

1/2 tsp Ground coriander

Heat up the oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook about 2-3 minutes, or until they turn translucent in color.
Add the shredded kale & sauté. When the kale starts to wilt, add cooked farro, and pulled chicken.
