Recipe Name: Chicken And Bulgur Tidbits With Minted Yogurt Sauce Submitted by: Administrator

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1 Cup(s) Plain lowfat yogurt
2 Tablespoon(s) Fresh lemon juice
2 Cloves garlic, minced
3 Tablespoon(s) Fresh Mint, Minced
1/2 Onion, coarsely chopped
2 Cloves garlic
4 Boneless skinless chicken
breast halves
1 Cup(s) Fine bulgur wheat
2 Tablespoon(s) Parsley, chopped
1 Teaspoon(s) Fresh ground black pepper
Vegetable oil
To make the minted yogurt, combine the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic,
mint, and salt to taste in a bowl. Chill. To make the chicken patties,
place the onion and garlic in a food processor or blender and mince.
Add the chicken and blend until smooth. Add 1 or 2 T. cold water and
blend to a smooth paste. Place the bulgur in a sieve, rinse under cold
runnning water briefly, then squeeze out moisture. Add the bulgur
wheat, parsley, salt and pepper to the chicken mixture and blend until
very smooth and moist. Shape by hand into 1-inch balls or ovals, or
2-inch biscuit-shaped patties. Add vegetable oil to a depth of
1/2-inch in a skillet and place over medium-high heat. When the oil is
hot, add chicken balls, and fry, turning frequently, until golden
brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature
with minted yogurt for dipping. Serve 8 as an appetizer, or 4 or 5 as
a main course. NOTE: "Variation on the theme of patties made of ground
meat and bulgur wheat are found throughout the Middle East. Here
chicken substitutes for the more common lamb." NOTE: Although the
recipe talks about "patties", the accompanying photo shows an
appetizer size that looks more like a "tater tot" - bite-size. Recipe
