Chicken hummus bowls

I found a recipe for a hummus and chicken dinner that sounded light and easy. The original recipe called for chicken thighs but Samantha prefers chicken breasts so I changed it up. Use whatever your family prefers.

Chicken hummus bowls

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken cut into 1 inch pieces
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • 2 cloves chopped garlice
  • 2 TB lemon juice
  • hummus
  • 1 cucumber, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • chopped parsley
  • warmed pita bread

Toss chicken with 2 TB of oil and spices. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil and broil for 7-10 minutes. Combine garlic with pinch of salt and whisk in lemon juice and about 3 TB of olive oil. Add chicken to mixture. Let sit for about 5 minutes.

Divide hummus between bowls and top with chicken and vegetables. Serve with pita bread.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
