"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."

"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!"

"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!"
