    Instructions
    Make the Greek Vinaigrette: Combine oil, garlic, lemon juice, shallot, vinegar, oregano, honey and kosher salt to taste in a small bowl or glass jar. Whisk or shake well to combine. Taste and adjust for seasoning as needed.
    Make the easy Greek Chicken: Place the shredded chicken in a large bowl and drizzle on the vinaigrette to taste (reserve some from drizzling over the hummus). Toss to thoroughly coat the chicken.

    Recipe Notes:
    1. Chicken: You can absolutely cook your own chicken for this hummus bowl (grill, bake, broil or poach). To keep things super easy I used skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breasts. You are tossing the cooked chicken with a Greek Vinaigrette which adds a ton of flavor, so taking a short cut here won’t hurt anything!
    2. Hummus: You can either make your own hummus or store-bought here. Whatever you like best.
    3. Pickled Onions: These are super easy to make and perfect to have on hand in the fridge! To make your own- combine ½ cup apple cider vinegar, 1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt with 1 cup of warm water. Whisk until everything is dissolved. Thinly slice 1 red onion and add it to the pickle brine. Let the onions hang out on the counter for an hour at room temperature. Drain before using! Alternatively, the pickled onions can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
