Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Pour hot water over the Bulgur Wheat (2 cups) in a large bowl until it is submerged. Let it sit for 30 minutes.
step 2
While it sits, make the filling. Heat the Olive Oil (1 dash) in a skillet over medium low heat. Then add the Onion (1), Pine Nuts (1/3 cup), Pecans (1/3 cup), Dried Apricot (1/3 cup), and Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp) in and let them get fragrant for a couple of minutes while you stir it.

step 3
Take it off the heat and let it cool. When the 30 minutes are up, drain the wheat in a fine mesh colander. It will have expanded, so measure out 2 cups of it into a mixing bowl. Use the rest in salad, like tabbouleh.
step 4
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line a sheet tray with a silicone mat or foil.
step 5
Add Dried Onions (1 tsp), Garlic Powder (1 tsp), Ground Cumin (1 tsp), Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp), Ground Turmeric (1 tsp), and Paprika (1/2 tsp) with the Ground Chicken (2 lb) and mix it all together thoroughly so that it holds together well, like a meatloaf.

Take a big handful of it about the size of your palm and make a big indentation in the middle. Scoop a tablespoon of filling into the indentation and close the sides in around it.
