Chicken & Bulgur Salad with Peaches

Serves: 4

As a quick-cooking whole grain, bulgur is perfect for time-crunched weeknight cooking. If you can’t find it in the grains section, you can replace it with quinoa or whole-wheat couscous.

 

INGREDIENTS

1⅓ cups water
⅔ cup bulgur
1 lb. chicken breast cutlets
1 tsp. kosher salt, divided
½ tsp. black pepper
4 cups packed arugula
2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
2 cups sliced fresh peaches
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. rice vinegar

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine the water and bulgur in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain, rinse the bulgur under cold water, then drain again and spread out on paper towels to dry.
2. Meanwhile, coat a grill pan with cooking spray and place over high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with ½ teaspoon of both the salt and the pepper. Transfer to the hot pan and grill, turning occasionally, until done, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove to a cutting board and let stand for 3 minutes, then slice against the grain into strips.
3. Place the bulgur, arugula, tomatoes and peaches in a large bowl. Add the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and the oil and vinegar; toss to coat. Divide the mixture among 4 plates and top evenly with the chicken.
