Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

Boil a kettle

Add the bulgur wheat to a pot with plenty of boiled water and a generous pinch of salt

Cook over a high heat for 7-9 min or until tender with a slight bite, then drain and return to the pot

2 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium heat

Once hot, add the walnuts and toast for 3-4 min, or until they've darkened in colour slightly

3 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

While the walnuts are toasting, chop the basil coarsely (including the stalks)

Peel and roughly chop the garlic

Break the cheddar into small pieces

Transfer the toasted walnuts to a food processor and reserve the pan for later

Tip: If you don't have a food processor, chop the walnuts with a knife, then add to a pestle and mortar!

4 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

Add the chopped basil, chopped garlic and cheddar pieces to the food processor with the toasted walnuts (or a pestle & mortar)

Add the red wine vinegar, a pinch of salt and pepper, and 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil

Blitz together to form a coarse purée – this is your walnut & cheddar pesto

5 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

Slice the chicken breasts into strips

Return the reserved pan to a medium heat with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil

Add the sliced chicken with a pinch of salt and cook for 2-3 min on each side until golden

Tip: Grind a generous amount of pepper onto the chicken for an extra kick of spice

6 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

While the chicken is cooking, cut the cherry tomatoes in half

Once the chicken has browned, add the tomatoes and cook for a further 2 min, or until they've warmed through

Fluff the cooked bulgur with a fork

7 Walnut & Cheddar Pesto Chicken Bulgur

Stir the fluffed bulgur and half of the walnut & cheddar pesto (reserve the rest for garnish!) through the chicken and tomatoes, until everything is lightly coated in the pan juices and pesto – this is your walnut & cheddar pesto chicken bulgur
