Burghul, dry

80 g, (see note)

Lemon juice

2 tbs

Olive oil

1 tbs

Dried cranberries

35 g

Lebanese cucumber

1 medium, deseeded, finely chopped

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

Smoked skinless 97% fat-free chicken breast

150 g, (2 x 75g each)


  1. Place burghul in a heatproof bowl. Add 1 cup (250ml) boiling water. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes or until softened. Drain. Return to bowl.
  2. Add juice, oil, cranberries, cucumber, parsley, tomatoes, shallots and chicken to burghul. Toss to combine.
  3. Place 2 lettuce leaves in each serving bowl. Fill with chicken tabouli. Serve with hommus and toasted bread.


Burghul is cracked wheat and is sold in the health-food section of the supermarket. We used fine-ground burghul in this recipe. If you use coarse-ground burghul, you will need to soak it for 20 minutes.
