One Pot Spanish Wheat Berries with Chickpeas and Olives

Wheat berries are my favorite grain to cook with.  They are inexpensive, and the texture is outstanding!  I feel like they get overlooked so often because gluten free grains are popular right now.  Also, fancier wheat grains are often used by recipe developers, so they get all the hype.  I have tried both farro and kamut (ancient wheat grain varieties), and I don’t think they are worth the extra money when compared to standard wheat berries.  This one pot Spanish wheat berries with chickpeas and olives is a take on arroz con pollo, made vegetarian of course!
