Hummus is no longer just a dip–it is now a decadent filling to turn your next boring chicken dinner into an exotic meal !  Think about what hummus has–spices, chickpeas, seasoning and olive oil.  All healthy ingredients that are spreadable.  I had roasted red pepper hummus and I added a few more ingredients and I came up with this amazing dish !

Ingredients:

3 medium sized chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded thin.

1/4 cup of roasted red pepper hummus

A few dashes of Sriracha (adjust to you heat preference)

A few fresh basil leaves

Salt, pepper, garlic powder and cumin-1/4 tsp of each.

Method:

Butterfly the chicken breasts and pound them out thin.  Cover the breasts with plastic wrap while doing so to prevent a mess.

Let the chicken rest for 15 mins, slice and serve with the sauce that forms in the bottom of the baking dish.  Add some couscous or quinoa on the side for a complete meal !
