Chicken Breast Stuffed with Stuff
-2 chicken breasts
-8 kalamata olives, sliced and diced
-3 sun dried tomato halves
-zucchini, cut into half moons
Here's the tomatoes and kalamatas (tossed with a smidge of olive oil) for the stuffing:
And here is where that stuff is gonna go:
I'll be brutally honest, taking side shots of a slit-down-the-center, flesh colored chicken breast is downright pornographic. It took about 4 tries until I realized... there are things that just shouldn't be done. Anyways, moving on. Douse your chicken in spices. And I do mean douse. Sun dried tomatoes AND kalamata olives are rock solid, earthy, armpit-sweat-strong flavors, so you need to challenge that. I did this: lots of cumin, lots of garlic powder, lots of sage:
Now, because it's apparently what I do for every goddamn meal, add your zucchini half moons to the pyrex where your chicken will also cook, and add some parmesan shreds:
Looks sort of lame, I know, but trust me. On to the bulgur wheat. This stuff takes like 15 minutes tops to cook and is tasty in a nice nutty way (lol, nutty), and it's fairly self-sufficient. Just measure it out....
Add water and let it boil, then cover and simmer til done-zo...
While the bulgur is simmering, take out the chicken and veggies, and cover with foil. Here's my easy tip: Use a dish towel:
You place the tin foil over the pyrex and then drape a dish towel over that. Now you're free to crimp the foil around the baking dish, thanks to the heat-resistant towel. God, I am a genius.
Once your wheat is done, rip off the foil, throw everything on a plate and enjoy this:
