Chicken, bacon, quinoa and bulgar wheat bake - recipe.

My mum recently bought a bag of Bulgar Wheat and Quinoa Mix and I've been wondering what to do with it for ages. I scoured Pinterest and BBC Food for recipe ideas but nothing took my fancy. I made up this 'bake' recipe using different recipies put together so it's a bit random and I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but it's lovely!

Quinoa and Bulgar Wheat Bake

First I cooked my bulgar wheat and quinoa as per the instructions on the back of the packet. I poured 1 cup of the mix into the pan and added 2 cups of water and boiled for around 15 minutes.

In the meantime I chopped my chicken and put this in a separate pan to cook. When this was cooking I chopped my peppers, tomatoes and bacon which I removed the fat from. I then added this to the chicken and simmered it all down whilst the bulgar wheat/quinoa cooked.

When the bulgar wheat and quinoa was cooked, I drained this off and added it to the cooked chicken and bacon mix. I then popped this into 2 glass dishes.

I then topped the dishes with the cheddar - which is of course optional! Then baked in the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese had melted. This tasted really creamy and delicious and was really filling.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas on what to cook with this quinoa and bulgar wheat mix.
