MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2011

I couldn't find bulgur at my grocery store so I used whole wheat cous cous. Lots of flavor in this recipe; however, it took me a VERY long time to prep and make this.

MY REVIEW

Easy to make, ingredients I carry on hand, delicious, and incredibly healthy! This is going onto my "make frequently" list. Thanks!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2011

Great blend of flavors. I used regular tomatoes, seeded and chopped, increased the lemon juice just a bit, and added a little lemon zest. As another reviewer mentioned, fresh basil is the way to go. Would like to try this with quinoa, leaving out the chicken.

I think this was awesome! lots of flavor. I don't like to eat the extra bulk of the bulgar and even just the combo of veggies and chicken is great!

MY REVIEW

I followed it exactly except I omitted the olives. It was very good. Season your chicken really well and make sure you use FRESH basil!
