Cook the chicken
In a large pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ½ 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 pot. Reserve the pot.

Start the skillet
In the reserved pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Sauté the zucchini, 2 to 3 min., until slightly browned. Add the garlic, tomato paste and remaining spices. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant and dark red. Add the bulgur, ¾ cup water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 4 to 6 min., until the bulgur is tender and the water has been absorbed. Add the lime juice; stir well.
