  • For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour dressing over the bulgur mixture. Toss lightly to coat. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours, stirring occasionally. Bring to room temperature before serving.

  • Serve romaine with bulgur mixture and cooked chicken.

*Note:

To grill chicken breast halves, lightly sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. For a charcoal grill, place chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chicken on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
