Hummus Stuffed Chicken (and Layered Hummus Dip)

I made a delicious Layered Hummus dip the other day and it was so fantastic I decided I needed to put it in some chicken. If you just want the dip I will put the layers at the bottom of the post.









There is no exact measurements for the chicken just how many you need, and be sure not to overload your chicken.



Chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
Hummus, store bought or homemade
Cucumber, diced
Purple Onion, minced
Red Bell Pepper, diced
Feta or Goat Cheese
Shredded Spinach


Paprika, Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to  350





Place your thinly pounded chicken on a flat surface, spread with a layer of hummus
















Sprinkle on cucumbers, onions, peppers, cheese and spinach.











Carefully roll up, secure with tooth picks or tie with butcher's string if needed.


Place on a lightly greased foil on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper as desired.








Bake for 30-45 minutes until an internal temperature reads 165.


Remove from oven cover with foil












allow to set for 10 minutes before serving








For just the dip:

2 cups prepared hummus
1/2 large cucumber, peeled and diced
1/2 small purple onion, minced
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
1 roma tomato, diced*
2 cups baby spinach, shredded
2-3 oz goat or feta cheese


*I would have put this in the chicken too, but I was out!


Spread hummus in a 8 x 8 baking dish, sprinkle remaining ingredients over in the order given.

Fresh pepper to taste and refrigerate one hour.

Serve with pita or tortilla chips
