  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 4tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 50g bulgur wheat
  • 2 large, tomatoes, chopped
  • large bunch fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • small bunch fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, peeled, finely chopped
  • 3tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2tbsp extra virgin olive oil

If you donít have any bulgur wheat, try using couscous instead.


  1. Coat the drumsticks in the BBQ sauce and cook either on a griddle pan, in the oven or on the BBQ if using. This will probably take between 10-15mins. Check the inside is completely cooked through. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile cook the bulgur wheat according to the packet instructions.
  3. In large bowl mix the tomatoes, parsley, mint and onion; mix well to combine. Fork through the bulgur once cooked and add it to the tomato mixture. Drizzle over the lemon juice and olive oil and season with salt. Mix again.
  4. To serve, tip the tabbouleh onto a bed of large salad leaves and serve with the drumsticks.
