Put down the pita! Hummus has more uses than just a party dip served next to veggies. In this meal, chicken breasts are slathered with the chickpea goodness and then broiled, hummus locking in the flavor and juiciness. Served next to a roasted vegetable medley, and seasoned with smoky paprika and distinctive cumin, this low-cal, low-carb dish uses hummus to satisfy the health nuts among us.

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces. Stem, seed, and cut red bell pepper into 1’’ dice. Trim ends off green beans. Set aside ½ tsp. paprika and ½ tsp. cumin for garnish. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 2 - Roast the Vegetables

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place cauliflower, green beans, and red bell pepper on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and season with ½ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, remaining cumin, and remaining paprika. Toss to coat and spread into a single layer. Roast until cauliflower is tender and browned, 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn on broiler. While vegetables roast, sear chicken.

  • Step 3 - Sear the Chicken

    Sear the Chicken

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken to hot pan and sear undisturbed until golden brown, 3-5 minutes. Flip chicken, reduce heat to medium, and cook 5-6 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Add Hummus and Broil Chicken

    Add Hummus and Broil Chicken

    Scoop half the hummus on each chicken breast and spread. Place pan under broiler until chicken is golden brown and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Remove pan from broiler and rest chicken 3 minutes.

  • Step 5 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Scoop roasted vegetables onto plate and place chicken up against vegetables. Garnish chicken with reserved paprika and cumin.
