1. Bring a medium pot of boiling, salted water to a boil. Stir in the rice and boil until just done, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain. Rinse with cold water and drain thoroughly.
2. In a large serving bowl, whisk together the yogurt, pesto, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken and the rice and toss to combine.
Serve With: Pesto
Wine Recommendation: Both the dominant herbal flavor of the pesto and the yogurt's acidic tang suggest a sauvignon-blanc-based wine. Once again, look to the Loire, sauvignon's ancestral home, for an herbal, gassy, citrusy Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé.
