  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 lb cooked chicken breast poached or from a rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup prepared hummus
  • 20 kalamata olilves pitted
  • 1 tomato seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 red onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • lemon wedges for serving
  • pita bread or naan dippers for serving


  1. Heat the oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add the rice and sauté, stirring constantly, for about one minute. Add the water, lemon juice, one teaspoon of salt and dried parsley. Bring the water to a boil. Reduce to simmer. Cover the pan and simmer until the rice is fluffy and the water is fully absorbed, about 15 minutes.

  2. In a clean bowl, combine the chopped tomato, red onion, parsley, feta cheese, olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey and remaining salt. Stir well to combine.

  3. Assemble the rice bowls: divide the rice evenly among four bowls. Top each rice bowl with cooked chicken, kalamata olives and hummus. Then pour the feta dressing evenly over the rice bowls. Serve the bowls with lemon wedges and pita or naan bread.
