Baked Chicken in Hummus

Are you looking for something really quick for dinner, but with a fantastic taste? This is the meal for you. I think it took me about 5 minutes to prepare..and then about 20-25 in the oven. That`s it. Can`t get much easier ( though I will tell you how) Here is the original recipe that I changed a bit.

What you need:

Your favorite easy to cut or out of a frozen bag vegetables. I used zucchini and yellow squash

3/4 of a cup of hummus, store bought or homemade
4 chicken breasts
lemon juice
sumac or smoked paprika to sprinkle

First, slice your vegetables and lay them in a baking pan. Or use thawed frozen vegetables of your choice.

Next, spread some hummus on one side of the chicken, lay it on top of your veggies (hummus side down) and spread over the top. I used about 1 Tbls of hummus per piece of chicken. Make sure your chicken is completely covered.

Drizzle a little lemon juice over everything - I just used the bottled lemon juice and zigzagged it over the dish.

Next, sprinkle with sumac, or smoked paprika (which I haven`t tried)

Place in the oven at 230 C for about 25 minutes. You should have a nice brown crust over your chicken.
