Hummus goes from appetizer to main dish as a rich, tangy coating on chicken breasts. In the oven, the hummus coating caramelizes slightly and the sprinkle of sesame seeds turns extra-crunchy and nutty. For leftovers, you could slice up the chicken and tuck it into a pita with crisp lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes. Source:, December 2018

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  • Whisk hummus, cumin, lemon zest, paprika, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Spread the mixture evenly on both sides of chicken breasts. Sprinkle both sides with sesame seeds, pressing gently to adhere. Place on the prepared pan.

  • Roast the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 160 degrees F, about 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes (the temperature will increase to 165 degrees F). Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
