Hummus Crusted Chicken

09 Oct

Honestly, this isn’t even really a “recipe” as recipes go, because this meal is stupid-easy. However, it’s also delicious, so you should try it. You can thank me later! The original recipe is here. Their pictures are a lot prettier than mine, but I’d rather just make the food, snap a pic, and dig in.


Hummus Crusted Chicken

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and spray a small baking dish with olive oil (or just line a pan with aluminum foil and give that a spritz, like I normally do)

Take 4 defrosted chicken breasts, patted dry and season with salt and pepper.

Cover with your favorite flavor of hummus so the entire top surface of the breast is covered.

You could take this almost anywhere with flavor; jalapeño cilantro hummus, garden veggie hummus, garlic hummus, roasted red pepper hummus…the possibilities are endless.

Sprinkle with a touch of lemon juice and paprika (smoked or sweet)

Bake 25-30 minutes

I like to serve mine over salad with a tomato dressing. Do what you want.

    Found your blog the other day and made this last night for dinner..made some Coriander hummus as I had half a bunch of coriander to use before it went past. OMG it was INCREDIBLE!! I regret not having had this before, all these years missing out! 🙂 thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I served it with a side salad and some spicy chilli polenta. Hubby joyed it so much he wants it served regularly now. I’m thinking next time I might try sun semi dried tomatoes and fresh basil added to garlic hummus, and wondering how it would work on baked fish, something thick and meaty like cod, maybe? Thanks for the inspiration!

      Coriander hummus sounds delicious! I’m always trying to find recipes that’ll get my husband to eat chicken (he’s not a fan), and he loves this one! I’d love your recipe for chili polenta, it sounds great! We’re big fans of spicy. Garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil would be fabulous on this! That’s one of my favorite flavor combinations. For fish, I’m not a big fan of cod, personally, because it tends to shrink a lot and taste pretty fishy. I love working with tilapia steaks. They hold up really well and won’t disappear under the weight of the hummus. Let me know what you try! I’d love to hear your thoughts.
