- Place bulgur wheat in a large stainless steel bowl and cover with warm water for 15 minutes before draining well and reserving.
- Heat olive oil in a large heavy-based frying pan. Place chicken into the pan, skin-side down and fry until skin turns a golden brown. Place in oven and roast for 5 to 6 minutes or until almost cooked. Carefully remove from oven and allow to rest, skin side up. The heat remaining in the frying pan will continue the cooking process.
- Place bulgur wheat, fennel, cauliflower, parsley, mint, walnuts and radicchio in a large bowl and dress with half of the pomegranate molasses dressing. Season to taste with a little salt and pepper and divide salad between 4 plates. Carve chicken and place on top of the salad and drizzle with the cooking juices from the chicken and the remaining pomegranate molasses dressing. Serve immediately.
