Grilled Harissa Chicken Breasts
with Veggie Bulgur and Lemon-Garlic Yogurt Sauce
Earthy and warm harissa-coated chicken tenders get fire-licked on the grill for that irresistible smoky profile we missed all winter long. Lightly charred sweet peppers grilled alongside the chicken get chopped and tossed with nutty bulgur for a tasty side and a lemony, garlicky yogurt drizzle finishes the plate off with some pizzazz!
