Panera Mediterranean Warm Grain Bowl

Panera Mediterranean Warm Grain Bowl

This copycat Panera Mediterranean Warm Grain Bowl recipe has everything that the Panera version has - but it's even better and super easy to make! I love the combo of all my favorite ingredients like olives, hummus, tahini and Greek yogurt!

  • Marinate chicken breasts overnight in Mojo Criollo Marinade
  • Cook chicken breasts -
    Bake: 350 degrees for 20 minutes
    Air Fry: 350 degrees for 12 minutes
  • Heat your rice/quinoa according to package directions
  • In two large serving bowls, place greens around edge of bowl
  • Prep veggies (slice tomatoes, cucumbers)
  • Add cooked quinoa and split between two bowls on top of greens
  • Remove chicken and let rest for 5 minutes
  • Top quinoa/greens with tomatoes, cucumber, olives
  • Slice chicken and place on top of quinoa
  • Add heaping spoonful of hummus and yogurt to the bowl
  • Top with crumbled feta
  • Squeeze lemon over both bowls
  • If you like, add tahini dressing - but I didn't feel it needed it!


– You can use rotisserie chicken if you like
– For the brown rice/quinoa – you can either use a bag of frozen rice/quinoa or Minute Rice makes a microwavable one! Super quick!
– Tahini dressing is expensive and not easy to find – I found that it wasn’t necessary with the yogurt and hummus – and when I tried the Panera version – I didn’t even taste it!
– Arugula is lighter than spinach but a little bitter – I found a mix of the two at the store that was really good
