1T Olive Oil
1C Chopped Red Onion
1 Pound Chicken Breast (cut into bite size pieces)
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1 1/2 C Homemade Chicken Broth (no salt)
1/2t Poultry Seasoning
1/4t Crushed Red Pepper
1 1/2C Bulgur Wheat
1 15 oz Can of Black Eye Peas
1T Fresh Snipped Thyme
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large skillet, saute chopped onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat. When onion is translucent (about 4 minutes) add chicken. Allow chciken to sit and brown. Stir to brown all sides (cook about 4 minutes) Add seasonings and stir for 1 minute more.
Carefully add chicken broth to pan and stir in bulgur. Cover and let simmer until liquid is absorbed. Add black eye peas and stir. Cover and allow flavors to blend for about 5-10 more minutes.
Serve with fresh snips of thyme. I put this on top of some steamed broccoli and it was a great flavor.
Replace Bulgur with 3/4 C long grain rice. (Your cooking time will increase a little)
Soak and cook your own Blackeye Peas. This will reduce the salt in your meal
