  • 4 chicken drumsticks
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large shallots, cut into thin rings
  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup toasted almonds, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Heat a grill to medium. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. In a large bowl, toss together drumsticks, thighs, cumin, coriander; season with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, 20 minutes, turning often.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium pot, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until browned, 5 minutes. Transfer shallots to a medium bowl. Add bulgur and water to pot; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high and cook 1 minute. Stir, cover, remove from heat, and let stand until water is absorbed, 10 minutes. Fluff bulgur with a fork; transfer to bowl and toss with shallots, almonds, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken with bulgur topped with cilantro.
