Instructions

Get Started
1

a) Pour the water for the bulgur (see pantry for amount) into a large saucepan.

b) Stir in the chicken stock paste (15g/20g/30g - you'll use the rest later) and bring to the boil.

c) Stir in the bulgur, bring back up to the boil and simmer for 1 min. Stir the cranberries into the bulgur, pop a lid on the pan and remove from the heat.

d) Leave to the side for 12-15 mins or until ready to serve.

Fry the Chicken
2

a) Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

b) Once hot, add the diced chicken and season with salt and pepper.

c) Fry until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Make the Dressing
3

a) While the chicken cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

b) In a large bowl, combine the red wine vinegar, olive oil for the dressing (see pantry for amount) and a good pinch of sugar (if you'd like).

c) Season with salt and pepper. Leave your dressing aside for now.

Build the Flavour
4

a) Once the chicken is cooked, stir in the garlic, tomato puree and harissa paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder) and cook until fragrant, 1 min.

b) Pour in the water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) and the remaining chicken stock paste. Add a pinch of sugar (if you'd like).

c) Stir and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, 3-4 mins.

Final Touches
5

a) Once thickened, stir the spinach into the chicken pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.

b) When ready, fluff up the bulgur with a fork. Spoon half of the dressing over the bulgur and stir through.

c) Toss the baby leaves through the remaining dressing. TIP: Don't add the leaves too early or they'll go soggy.

Serve
6

a) Share the cranberry bulgur between your bowls.

b) Spoon the harissa chicken and spinach over the top. 

c) Serve the dressed baby leaf salad alongside.

Enjoy!
