Prep   35 min

  • Bulgur, ½ cup(s), uncooked
  • Extra virgin olive oil, 2 tsp(s)
  • Chicken breast, raw, 6 oz(s)
  • Parsley, fresh, 1 cup(s), chopped
  • Fresh mint, ½ cup(s), chopped
  • Cucumber, ½ medium, peeled and finely chopped
  • Cherry tomatoes, 20 cherry tomato(es), quartered
  • Lemon, ½ medium, juice and zest
  • Black pepper, 1 dash(es)
  • Avocado, 4 tbsp(s), sliced

Method

Start by soaking the bulgur in ½ cup boiling water, covered, for half an hour or until it has soaked up all the water and turned soft. If it’s still a little chewy, add a splash more hot water and wait another 10 to 15 minutes. Drain any extra water, and set aside.

Heat a skillet over a medium heat and add oil. Cook chicken on both sides until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.

In a large bowl, combine the bulgur with the parsley, mint, cucumber, tomato, and lemon zest. Add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil, plus the lemon juice and toss well to combine. Taste, and season with black pepper if desired. Top with the avocado.
