{Recipe} Hummus-Crusted Chicken

Hummus-Crusted Chicken. Hummus. Crusted. Chicken.  Gimme Some Oven, you are a GENIUS! This was an awesome alternative to regular old chicken. It was full of flavor and kept the chicken tender and juicy while baking. How did I not think of this before? Gimme Some Oven used zucchini, lemon and onion as their base. I opted for carrots and broccoli simply because I already had them on tap. As far as chicken goes, this is probably one of my favorite recipes. And did I mention it was SUPER EASY? Even better! The only thing I wished while eating this was I had put a thicker coat of hummus on top!

Serves: 2
Cook time according to Gimme Some Oven: 25-30 mins
Cook time according to Rachel: 35-40 mins
How difficult was this for Rachel to make? Easy!

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
veggies of choice for bottom layer
1 cup hummus
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika or sumac

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare baking dish with cooking spray
Lay veggies in a single layer on bottom of pan. Drizzle olive oil over veggies. 
Season chicken with salt & pepper and lay over veggies
(Next time, I might add some seasonings to the veggies)
Add hummus to the top of chicken breasts. It's not the worst thing in the world for a little extra hummus to fall on the veggies
Lightly sprinkle paprika on top of chicken. I am still working on mastering the "lightly sprinkle" part.
Bake chicken for 30-35 minutes until no longer pink. Serve immediately!
