Vegie Bulgar & BBQ Chicken Wings

Trying to impress my sister, I wanted to do something special but did not have the time to go shopping so I ravaged through my cupboard to find something to go with my chicken wings. Hurrah, found some Bulgar Wheat so I done the following:

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 mug of Bulgar Wheat
  • 1 large courgette
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 red pepper
  • about 6-8 mushrooms
  • 1 fresh chilli
  • 1/2 can of tomatoes
  • 1 spoon of tomato paste
  • 1 garlic clove
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 soup spoons of olive oil
Dice into small cubes the onion the pepper the courgette and thinly slice the mushrooms.
I used a Wok... so put the olive oil in the Wok add the pepper the onion and the garlic (minced) let it fry for about 5 minutes then add the (chopped & de-seeded) chilli, the courgette and the mushrooms, let it cook for another 3 minutes, then add the tomato and the tomato paste, and let it cook for about 10 minutes (or longer if you wish)
As to the Bulgar wheat just boil it in water as if it was rice for about 10-12 minutes, then once cooked drain it and rinse it with boiling water, let it drain until has no remaining water then add to the sauce and cover it with a lid.
As to the chicken wings, was very simple, I cut the tips off and cut the wings into two parts, placed them in a bowl and added the following, 1 crushed garlic, a spoon of smoky paprika, salt and pepper to taste, a couple of spoons of honey a pinch of chilli powder (put more if you like it spicy), a lid of sherry, and finally a squirt of smoky BBQ sauce. Left it to marinade for about 30 minutes, then laid them on a tray previously smeared with olive oil, gas mark 200 c and let it cook for about 25 minutes until crispy (times may vary depending on oven), then served it with the Veggie Bulgar. It was very nice, first picture was my sisters serving the next picture was my serving LOL.
