#2 Creamy chicken flavoured with nutmeg & served with bulgur

That’s a dish which is highly recommended to those who are now getting acquainted with the magical attributes of spices and the smooth oriental flavour of an extremely nourishing alternative to rice, that is to say bulgur.

Here is a pure improvisation which resulted to a delicious and pretty filling dish. It’s very quick and easy to cook!

WHAT YOU NEED:

For the chicken:

2 fillets of chicken breast (cut into smaller pieces)

Virgin olive oil

1/2 of a dry onion

100g creamy cheese

250ml of milk cream

nutmeg

salt

pepper

For the bulgur:

1 tablespoonful of butter

250g of bulgur

salt

pepper

HOW TO:

Fry the chicken within some olive oil together with the onion until it becomes white. Add the cream cheese and make sure that it melts. Then add the cream and pour the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir it and let it boil slowly in medium temperature for 6-7 minutes. Use a different saucepan for the preparation of the bulgur. Melt the butter and pour the bulgur. Stir it for a while and pour water (pour a little more than the quantity required for the bulgur to get fully covered by the water). Let it boil slowly in medium temperature until the water is gone (ATTENTION: Keep an eye on it so that you avoid burning the bulgur!). Time for serving!

Enjoy! 🙂
