Dinner Recipe: Bulgur with Chicken

Bulgur is a parboiled and dried whole grain most often made of durum wheat. It has a slightly nutty flavor, a low glycemic index and has high levels of vitamins and minerals. I try to vary in all my meals and I think Bulgur is a great variation on brown rice and in combination with chicken and some fresh vegetables it makes a delicious meal! This recipe is based on a recipe of Jamie Oliver.



Duration:
15 minutes


The ingredients for 1 serving":

  •  75 gr of Bulgur
  • 1 chicken breast
  • Broccoli
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 spring onions
  • Radishes
  • 1 ts dried coriander
  • Fresh mint
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbs red wine vinegar
  • Handful of sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds
  • Cress
  • 2 tbs natural yoghurt
  • Salt & pepper

Directions:
  1. Cook the bulgur as directed on the package. 
  2. Cut the chicken into pieces, season with salt, pepper and the dried coriander and bake them in 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet for 8 minutes or until their golden brown and cooked. 
  3. Cut the stem of the Broccoli, remove the florets and steam the florets for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Cut the radishes in half and the spring onions in small rings. Mix the extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar in a bowl and ad pepper & salt to taste.  Pick some fresh mint leaves and mix these with the cut radishes and spring onions in the bowl with the olive oil vinegar dressing. 
  5. Poor the water from the bulgur and put on your plate with the juice of one lemon. Put the vegetables mix, broccoli florets and chicken on top. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and some cress over it and finish it of with 2 tablespoons of natural yoghurt (you can also serve the yoghurt on the side). If you want it to be more spicy just add some harissa to the yoghurt.


Enjoy this delicious dinner!
