Would someone PLEASE post the food and wine recipe for chicken and bulgar salad with avocados? The link is blocked on my computer and I was planning on cooking it tonight. Thanks so much.

  1. Here are the ingredients:

    1 cup bulgur
    1 cup boiling water
    Two 6-ounce boneless chicken breasts, with skin
    1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    1/2 cup fresh orange juice
    1/2 cup chopped basil leaves
    5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 large scallions, thinly sliced
    2 Hass avocados, cut into 1-inch chunks
    1 medium fennel bulb (3/4 pound), cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
    Preheat the oven to 500°. In a heatproof bowl, cover the bulgur with the boiling water. Cover the bowl with a plate and let stand until the water has been absorbed and the bulgur is tender, about 30 minutes.
    Meanwhile, on a rimmed baking sheet, coat the chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon of the grapeseed oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast the chicken on the top shelf for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and just cooked through; let cool. Slice the breasts on the diagonal about 1/4 inch thick.
    In a small bowl, whisk the orange juice with the basil, lemon juice, scallions and the remaining 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil; season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper.
    In a large bowl, toss the bulgur, chicken, avocados, fennel and tomatoes with the vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper. Mound the salad onto plates and serve.

    Make Ahead
    The salad can be refrigerated for up to 2 hours.
