How to make Greek Chicken Loaded Hummus Bowl (notes, tips & tricks):
You can definitely cook your own chicken for this hummus bowl (grill, bake, broil, poach, whatever!), or you can keep things super easy! I used skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breasts which makes these bowls perfect for lunches on the go or super fast family dinners! You will be tossing the cooked chicken with a homemade Greek
Vinaigrette which adds a ton of flavor, so taking a short cut here won’t hurt anything!
You can either make your own hummus or use store-bought hummus here. I’ve made these bowls both ways and honestly, as long as you get a good quality pre-made hummus, you won’t notice a difference.
I garnished my Greek Chicken Loaded Hummus Bowls with pickled onions. They are super easy to make, only require 4 ingredients (plus water) and are perfect to have on hand in the fridge! I have included how to make your own pickled onions in the notes section of the recipe below.
These hummus bowls are totally customize-able! I highly encourage you to load them up with the things you love!
