Baked Chicken Breasts with Hummus turned out real good,,, and I don’t like hummus!
But, used like this as a light coating on the Baked Chicken Breasts was a nice new twist on our many ways to use chicken breasts for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
Gammy likes hummus so, yes, there is always some in the fridge. But I never have or want any of it.
Well, I saw this recipe on Google while looking for new ideas for my blog and made it last night. It resulted in the only time, ever, that I enjoyed hummus.
Plus it’s gluten free and gets a green light for paleo.
Just pick any veggies that won’t cook real quickly and get mushy in the oven i.e. peas, spinach, etc.
Turn the oven on set at 450°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil.
Toss it all together with a pair of tongs or just get adventurous and do it by hand. Spread the veggies out flat.
Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts and lay them on top of the vegetables. Spread a thin coat of your favorite hummus on top of the chicken then…….
….into the oven it goes. For 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the breasts. When they are firm to a finger poke or read at least 170° on a meat thermometer take the pan out of the oven and serve your Baked Chicken Breasts with Hummus.
We had our go to chianti with this quick and easy weeknight meal and it all was real good. Hummus not withstanding.
