Hummus Crusted Chicken

  • Author: Morgan


This Hummus Crusted Chicken is good for you and great-tasting! Perfect for a quick but tasty meal that you can tweak to your taste!


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup hummus of your choice (I used chipotle hummus)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in the dish. Using a spoon, scoop the 1/2 cup hummus into a measuring cup to avoid contaminating the rest of the hummus from the raw chicken. Put the remaining hummus away, and spoon hummus from the measuring cup on the chicken. Spread it around until the breasts are evenly coated.
  3. Sprinkle the minced garlic, smoked paprika, cumin, and red chili powder on top of the chicken (or whatever seasonings you choose to use). Squeeze one lemon half over each chicken breast.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the hummus has crisped. Serve immediately.
