Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup bulgur
  • 1 cup small broccoli florets
  • 1½ tsp orange zest
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 4 4-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 2 tbsp white balsamic or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1½ tbsp raw honey
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes

Preparation

  1. Cook bulgur according to package directions; add broccoli during final
