An easy recipe for hummus crusted chicken that's juicy, flavorful and needs only 5 minutes to prep!


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup hummus, — any flavor (I used roasted red pepper), plus additional for dunking
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Fresh basil — and/or parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, then place the chicken in the pan in a single layer.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the hummus, smoked paprika, and cumin. Coat the chicken with the hummus mixture, ensuring that each breast is well covered.
  3. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through (time will vary depending upon the size of the chicken. Mine were about 9 ounces each and cooked in 22 minutes). Garnish with fresh basil and/or parsley as desired. Serve immediately with additional hummus for dipping.
