Hummus-Crusted Chicken

IMG_9595 (800x533)
I love doing some quick and easy dinners now that I have a baby and it’s even better when you get to use up leftovers from a party. I had some garlic roasted hummus leftover so I decided to use it as a crust on chicken. The recipe is written for chicken breast, but when I made it I used up some tenders I had in the freezer. We ended up adding some extra seasoning while we ate it, but either way it’s super quick for those busy nights.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup hummus
1 lemon
1 tsp. smoked paprika
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Lay the four chicken breasts out evenly, then cover each chicken breast with the hummus so that the entire breast is covered.

Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the chicken. Then sprinkle the chicken with smoked paprika.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately.
