Fresh: Delicious when eaten right away, the flavors in this one-bowl meal stand up admirably when it's prepared ahead—making this a good take-to-work lunch. Serve with toasted pita wedges or flatbread.
3/4 cup uncooked bulgur
1 cup boiling water
2 cups chopped skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
1 cup chopped plum tomato
1 cup chopped English cucumber
3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/3 cup finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to Make It
Place bulgur in a medium bowl; cover with 1 cup boiling water. Let stand 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
Combine chicken and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add bulgur to chicken mixture; toss gently to combine.
This is one of my favorite healthy meals to make. Sometimes I don't get the rotisserie chicken, i just put the some frozen chicken in a skillet with 1/2 cup water and season with salt, pepper and a little lemon juice. Then I cut the chicken up in cubes. the best thing about this dish is that it's even better the next day. The longer it sits the better it tastes. I'll prep it the day before if I have the time, and it's perfect for lunches for the following week.
Delicious quick meal - I think it came together in 20 minutes flat.
Used a regular cucumber and seeded it. Also, I cut the parsley in half and made up the difference with fresh thyme.
Definitely a keeper meal for hot summer days!
Really good, even my skeptical husband really enjoyed this one. We couldn't find bulgur, so we used whole wheat Israeli couscous. I also reduced the parsley and mint by half. Look forward to making this one again, hopefully with the bulgur.
This is a great meal. Tasty and quick enough to make on a week night. One of the few I don't make any substitutions on. Even my picky husband likes it! This is in our regular meal rotation on a biweekly basis.
This was really delicious! Even my kids liked this recipe. The only thing I would do differently is to reduce the parsley by half. We had baby carrots and hummus as a side. I am looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!
