Chicken Crumble Winter Vegetables

chicken and vegetable crumble

New murder on the blog! We all loved this recipe at home, to my surprise, because with Monsieur he did not win. Basically, he doesn't like pumpkin very much and here we have pumpkin, but above all … he NEVER wants to eat bulgur, and to make this crumble a complete dish I decided to put bulgur in the gratin bottom ^^

And no, I don't always consider his tastes when I prepare meals, and he was right! He loved it … to the point of taking the leftovers that were provided the next day in his lunchbox (leaving me without meals for the next day noon ah ah).

In short, all this blah, blah, to tell you that this recipe is ripping apart! Another recipe that takes our feet off eating vegetables! And this little parmesan crumble … just MIAM!
