This Hummus Crusted Chicken recipe is a quick, healthy recipe that’s perfect for lunch or dinner. Serve it with a side of rice, throw it in a wrap or pita or serve it over a bed of greens. 



1/4 cup hummus (use your favorite flavor!)
1 cup chopped pecans (or other nuts)
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
2/3 cup red peppers, diced
2/3 cup cucumbers, diced
2/3 cup tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup crumbled feta


  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels.
  2. Spread a layer of hummus on top of the chicken breasts and top with chopped nuts (press lightly to help them stick in the hummus)
  3. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 degrees F. Watch carefully at the end and if the nuts start to get too dark, cover the pan with foil.
  4. Meanwhile, combine diced veggies and feta in a bowl and stir to combine.
  5. Top chicken with veggie mixture and serve over rice, in a pita or over a bed of greens.


Optional step – prior to baking, marinate chicken in oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, onion and oregano or greek seasoning.
