Let the sun-dried tomato pesto shine in! With a touch of cream and bell pepper-based spices, it blankets seared chicken breasts in a warm, velvety, tangy-sweet sauce. You may want to spoon a little more over your veggies. Brussels sprouts are roasted until they’re just crisped at the edges, joined by leafy greens for a little wilting action. Serve it all atop fluffy bulgur—it won’t say no to some of that creamy tomato sauce, either!

Roast the Brussels sprouts & wilt the spinach
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Remove the root ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise (quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 12 to 14 min., until golden brown and tender. Remove from the oven and add the spinach; stir until slightly wilted.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Cook the bulgur
Meanwhile, in a medium pot, combine the bulgur, ¾ cup water (double for 4 portions), ½ the remaining spices and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 6 to 8 min., until the bulgur is tender and the water has been absorbed. Fluff the bulgur.

Make the sauce
Grate the garlic. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Sauté the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the cream, pesto, 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions) and the remaining spices; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 30 sec. to 1 min., until slightly thickened. Off the heat, add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); whisk.
