Heavenly Hummus Chicken

Alas, I can’t take credit for this delicious and healthy recipe. I found it in an issue of O magazine. It is soooo good—and so easy! Use storebought hummus or try my easy homemade version.


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 lemons, one sliced into rounds and the other juiced
  • ½ cup hummus
  • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs, broken into small pieces (or 2 Tbs dried rosemary)
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Place chicken in a baking dish; slather with hummus (make sure the layer is quite thick).
  3. Arrange lemon rounds over chicken. Sprinkle with fresh or dried rosemary.
  4. Drizzle generously with lemon juice and balsamic vinegar.
  5. Bake 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  6. Serve immediately, drizzling with lemon juice and seasoning with salt and pepper before serving.
