When I went to Trader Joe’s a couple of weeks ago, I picked up this white bean and basil hummus. It is fantastic!
I had some left over and wanted to use it up so I decided to put it on some chicken.
Now this recipe isn’t rocket science, but it sure tasted good.
Any hummus would work great, homemade or store bought.
What you need,
2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
¼ to ½ cup hummus
1 tbsp. vegetable or olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper.
Cook the chicken in the hot pan for 2 minutes per side until golden brown and crisp.
Remove the browned chicken from the pan. Spread a couple of tablespoons of the hummus over the top of each breast.
Place the hummus coated chicken into an oven safe baking dish and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
I served mine with buttermilk mashed potatoes and some garlicky sautéed snap peas!
It was delicious! The hummus gave the chicken a lot of flavor and it created a crisp topping.
A perfect simple dinner!
