This chicken dish is delightful. Very easy to make and the results are a moist chicken breast without using oils. The hummus adds flavor and keeps the breasts moist.  This would be an easy weekday family meal.

When trying to discover ways to enhance the chicken breast I wondered how Hummus would work. I found it to be an awesome treat to keep the chicken moist as well.
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 yellow squash, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup hummus, homemade or store bought
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika or sumac
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Prepare one large baking dish or two smaller baking dishes with cooking spray.
  3. Season the chicken breasts with generous pinches of salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini, squash and onion with olive oil until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. If using one baking dish, place all of the vegetables on the bottom of the dish in an even layer.
  6. Lay the four chicken breasts evenly on top, then cover each chicken breast with the hummus so that the entire breast is covered.
  7. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the chicken and vegetables.
  8. Then sprinkle the pan with smoked paprika or sumac.
  9. Thinly slice the remaining lemon, and place the slices in between the chicken and vegetables if desired.
  10. **If using two pans, use one for the chicken and one for the vegetables.**
  11. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Serve immediately.
