Chicken Bulgur Bowl

These nutritious bulgur chicken bowls with dried cranberries, arugula, pears, and a wholegrain mustard dressing are a fabulous dinner recipe. They’re super filling, because of the bulgur and full of great flavor from the greens, fruit and chicken. One cool thing I learned when researching bulgur is that is has fewer calories, less fat, and twice the fiber of brown rice (source).

These bowls make an excellent take-along-to-work lunch or a quick and easy weeknight meal. The recipe is flexible, so feel free to sub in or out the greens, dried fruit (I think this would be GREAT with currants as well), or the type of pear. Just keep the wholegrain mustard dressing...it's the best.
