Peach-Glazed Chicken with Peach-Studded Bulgur

My boyfriend loves peaches so I am always keeping an eye out for any recipe that incorporates peaches into it. This recipe from Cooking Light not only included peaches two ways, but it also used a wheat product I’ve never used before: bulgur.     Bulgur is a fast cooking whole grain that’s been parboiled, dried, and cracked. One cup of bulgur is only 150 calories and includes 8 grams of fiber and almost 6 grams of protein. Sounds like a good addition to any meal!       Ingredients: 1 1/3 cups water 3/4 cup uncooked bulgur 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided 2 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, divided 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger 2 cups chopped peaches 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup) 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock 1/4 cup peach preserves 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard

Salmon with Polenta and Warm Tomato Vinaigrette

I’ve been in a bit of a cooking rut lately (which is why I haven’t posted many recipes recently). Work has been busy which means that by the time I get home, I just want to eat something quickly with little effort. So I started researching 20 minute meals that are really simple to make, as long as I can get to the supermarket! This recipe from Cooking Light has a bunch of components I love but that I don’t normally put together: seared salmon with polenta topped with a warm tomato vinaigrette. It’s really tasty and comes together in no time, my kind of meal! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups chicken broth 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1 cup cornmeal 1 tablespoon whole milk or heavy cream (or whatever milk you have available) 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved 1/2 cup minced red onion 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
