1. Heat five tablespoon of the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the courgette, onion, red pepper, aubergine and garlic and cook over a high heat for 15–20 minutes, stirring almost continuously, until golden and softened.

2. Meanwhile, cook the bulgar wheat in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 15 minutes until tender.

3. While the bulgar wheat is cooking, brush the remaining oil over the chicken breasts and season well. Heat a large griddle pan until smoking, add the chicken and cook over a high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Remove from the heat and thinly slice diagonally.

4. Drain the bulgar wheat. Place in a large bowl, toss with the parsley and season. Add the hot vegetables and chicken, toss together and serve.
