A Girl & Her Food: Hummus Baked Chicken


Hummus Baked Chicken

For years I swear by the 21-day cleanse by Clean Program, it changed my life. Here is a recipe adapted from the Clean Program that you will love, make this ASAP and do your body some good! 

With the Holidays approaching and it being the most stressful time of the year this recipe is healthy, simple and stress-free. It takes a minute to prep....and all you have to do is place it in the oven, set the timer, and go back to wrapping gifts, addressing Holiday cards, etc. 


2 boneless chicken breasts 
2 lemons, 1 sliced in rounds and the other juiced
1/2 cup of hummus (ideally homemade)
4 fresh sprigs of thyme
Kosher Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste 


Preheat oven to 450 degrees 

Place chicken in a baking pan or sheet. Cover the top of the chicken with a thick layer of hummus, about 1/4".  Arrange lemon slices and rosemary sprigs on top of the hummus covered chicken. Drizzle the chicken lemon juice. Make sure to set aside some lemon juice before serving.  Bake the chicken for about 30 minutes or until hummus is golden brown and chicken is cooked all the way through. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt & pepper. Serve immediately.
