Mediterranean Chicken Bowls

Servings 6


Chicken and Rice

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp Greek seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1.5 cups long grain rice
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth


  • 1/2 seedless cucumber
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • kalamata olives


  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • Feta cheese (optional)


  • Set the pressure cooker to Sear/Saute on medium. Melt the butter in the inner pot. Add the onion, salt, and garlic and cook for 2–3 minutes. Add the spinach and cook an additional minute, or until the spinach is slightly wilted. Press CANCEL.
  • Season both sides of the chicken with the rub and place it on top of the spinach. Add the water.
  • Combine the rice and broth in a ceramic pot accessory. Cover and lower onto the wire cradle. Cook on high for 9 minutes.
  • When the timer is up, let the steam release naturally for 10 minutes, then press the steam-release button to release any remaining pressure. Press CANCEL.
  • Finely chop the parsley in a food processor. Add the hummus and lemon juice and process until well combined.
  • Carefully lift the ceramic pot out of the cooker and fluff the rice with a fork.* Transfer the chicken and spinach to a medium mixing bowl and chop.
  • To serve, add the chicken, vegetables, rice, and sauce to a bowl. If you’d like, sprinkle with the feta.
