"This recipe was passed on to me by a friend. I've altered it slightly to suit our tastes," Leann Hilmer from Sylvan Grove, Kansas says of the simple skillet supper. "We like it with a fresh green salad."

"I loved this and so easy to prepare! I used sliced pecans instead of walnuts because that's what I had in pantry. Served with Mae Ploy sauce. Yummy! Thanks for sharing!"

"I'm trying to include more grains and less potatoes/pasta in our meals. I had purchased bulgur and gotten chicken out of the freezer for dinner. I searched for someway to use them together and found this recipe. It was easy to make as a week night meal and I paired it with steamed broccoli. I doubled the cumin and cinnamon because we love cumin and such a small amount of cinnamon would have little impact. I also used currents instead of raisins and increased the amount to about 1/4 cup. My 11 year old enjoyed it...said it reminded her of the flavors of oatmeal. I reheated leftovers for lunch, which worked well. But I also think you could eat it as a cold salad.

Bulgur should be with the grains in the grocery store. Trader Joes carries it now (that's what I used) and it should be readily available in a natural foods store as well. It may be labled "bulgur wheat"."

"I second patriciasfrick's question.

What is bulgur and where (what part of grocery store) do you find it?"
