Crunchy Hummus-Crusted Chicken

Sunny days are finally here, and they call for healthy, delicious, and practical meals! If you looking for a recipe for simple meal, that is light and at the same time can be served in hundred and one way – chicken is your best bet. But, chicken has another tasty secret: hummus! Try our special crunchy hummus-crusted chicken recipe!



Hummus is usually not the first choice for a chicken topping, but it offers a quick and creative way to make the crispiest chicken you’ve ever tasted! You’ll only need:

  • 500 grams of chicken breasts
  • ½ cup of hummus
  • 1 clove of minced garlic
  • ½ tsp. of smoked paprika
  • 1 lemon
  • ½ tsp. of cumin


  1. Heat your oven to 220°C. Use baking paper to line your baking tray.
  2. Combine hummus, garlic, smoked paprika, and cumin in a bowl.
  3. Spread sauce over the chicken and lightly squeeze the lemon.
  4. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Wait until the sauce forms a crispy, golden-brown crust.



Serving Tips

You can combine our recipe with literally any other food for sunny days! Here are some suggestions:

  • Hummus is the key to this recipe. For the most authentic flavor, we recommend Ribella Hummus Natural or Ribella Hummus Spicy.
  • To add a spring vibe to this dish, serve it with cherry tomatoes, spring onions, and roasted baby potatoes.
  • For the brightest flavors, make a chicken salad. Use lettuce, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and red onions.
  • If your friends are coming over or if you want to take this dish to a picnic, use tortillas or burger buns. Try it with feta cheese, rocket, pickles, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, or any other topping that you love.
