Hummus Crusted Chicken - BusyButHealthy_1

This is a simple, and great dinner idea! You can adjust however you like, and create new flavor combinations. I like that this recipe is so versatile, and you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, and whatever brand of hummus you like.

Some other great ideas on how to switch it up. Roasted red pepper hummus, with red peppers as one of the vegetables. Garlic hummus, and adding dill and lemon to season the veggies. The possibilities are endless.

Didn’t provide the nutrition on this particular recipe, as I didn’t measure anything when I made it.  I was inspired by a few different pins  saw on Pinterest, and just used what I had on hand.

Have fun, get creative, and enjoy!
