Ingredients

  1. Check 1tablespoon olive oil
  2. Check 46-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  3. Check kosher salt and pepper
  4. Check 3cups low-sodium chicken broth
  5. Check 1 1/2cups medium-grain bulgur
  6. Check 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  7. Check 1 bunch spinach (thick stems removed), coarsely chopped
  8. Check 1/2cup fresh basil leaves, torn

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Cook the chicken until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add the broth, bulgur, garlic, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the skillet and bring to a boil.
