  • 4 boneless chicken breasts


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the olive oil in a medium pan. Add the onion, garlic, ginger and some seasoning, and fry until soft, about 8 mins. Add 1 tsp cinnamon and the garam masala, then heat for 2 more mins. Cover the bulgur wheat and sultanas with water and boil for about 5 mins until soft, then drain any excess water. Add to the onion mixture, then add the coriander and almonds. Check seasoning.

  2. Cut each chicken breast open so that it is flat like a book. Divide the stuffing between them and fold the top over. Rub the skins with a pinch of cinnamon. Place tightly packed into a small baking dish and bake for 25 mins. Serve the chicken with the rest of the mix alongside, with some green beans or a wintery veg salad.

Oh, I forgot to say - I served it with home-made Cajun spiced potato wedges and a green salad. Delicious!

Top marks for this one! We absolutely loved it. The stuffing was a little tricky to make first time around, basically because I've never done anything with Bulgar wheat before. I'm sure it will become easier in time! We were very impressed at the Bulgar Wheat and now I've got to go out and find some more recipes involving it, as Asda delivered two bags instead of the one! LOL We'll definitely be having this one again!

Very tasty. I served it with Hummus and salad - could be a bit dry otherwise.

Absolutely delicious.Made the stuffing another day as a salad with a mixed meat platter - could really accompany lots of dishes.
