2/3 cup bulgur
2/3 cup boiling water
4 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 small red onion, chopped
1 1/3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and ribs removed, minced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
4 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

In a medium bowl, combine the bulgur and the water. Cover
and let sit for 20 minutes.
In a large nonstick frying pan, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil
over moderate heat. Add the corn and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt
and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the onion
and continue cooking for 5 minutes longer, stirring
occasionally. Transfer to a large glass or stainless-steel bowl
and let cool.
Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the frying pan and heat over
moderate heat. Season the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the
salt and the black pepper. Cook the breasts until browned and
just done, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from
the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into 1/4-
inch slices.
Add the bulgur, tomato, jalapeno, cilantro, 3 tablespoons of the
lime juice, the cayenne, and 3/4 teaspoon of the salt to the
bowl with the corn and onion. Toss.
In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the
remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/4
teaspoon salt. Mound the salad onto plates. Top with the
chicken and drizzle the chicken with the lime oil.
