"Very basic yet tasty side that goes well with grilled or roasted chicken. Any type of dried fruit can be used in place of the dried cranberries." — GRAYJETMAN

dry bulgur wheat
1 1/2 tablespoons
chicken bouillon granules
Good and really easy to make, but mine came out a little too salty. I will probably use a little less boullion next time.
This was so salty that I couldn't eat it.
We enjoyed this very much. I substituted low sodium chicken broth for the water and chicken boullion. The small amount of butter really adds to the flavor, as does the sweetness of the cranberries. We will definitely make this again.
Super easy, tasty side dish. The second time I made this I used pineapple and ham. Great alternative to rice or potatos.
This recipe is wonderful. I used home made chicken stock, onions, a little garlic and parsley to balance the flavors. Bulgur is a high fiber, protein grain. Use it to replace rice or potatoes.
It was so easy to make and so yummy. I added diced grilled chicken right into the leftover bulgur and had a terrific lunch the next day.
This was good and quick. I reduced the boullion to 1 tsp. You don't really need to cook the bulgur, you can turn off the heat and let it sit for fifteen minutes, then fluff with a fork. Could easily be used as a breakfast if you take out the bouillion and add a little cinnamon. But I made it for lunch so I added some green onions and chopped almonds. In the end, I wish I didn't add the almonds. It added to much crunch and messed with the texture.
We thought this was a great recipe. Like many other reviewers, I used chicken broth. Next time I think I'll try added some onion and maybe parsley or cilantro. Still, its great the way it is. ETA: I added onion and parsley with my second go around. It was awesome. My husband loved it!
