Chicken topped with Homemade Houmous

This is a good way to make chicken a bit more interesting without using a complicated recipe or using something calorific (like melting cheese over the top).  You simply top the chicken with houmous and cook it in the oven to create a crust. You can use shop-bought houmous but I made my own.
This recipe makes plenty of houmous so you will have some left over.
You need:
400g tin of chickpeas, drained (but before you discard the liquid, check out this recipe!)
Juice of half a lemon
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tahini paste
Pinch of salt
Simply mix everything in a blender until smooth. This will keep in the fridge for about 5 days.
To make the chicken recipe, simply spread the houmous over a chicken breast, as thick as you like, and bake in the oven.

  1. Brilliant idea Caroline. So simple but I can see it being absolutely delicious. There are so many different flavours for hummus too so a different flavour combination with chicken each time for lots of variety.
