Weekly dinner staple…coming right up!
I had such high hopes for this hummus baked chicken recipe and it did not disappoint! Mediterranean vibes, lots of vegetables and delicious extras like feta cheese, kalamata olives and hummus make for a perfect combo of healthy and tasty. But the fact that it’s a one dish meal instead of a messy kitchen creator, I thought surely it was too good to be true. Try it for yourself and be pleasantly surprised with this upgrade to your weeknight chicken dinner.
- Cherry tomatoes
- Feta cheese
- Greek olives
- Chicken Breasts
- Seasonings: Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder and Sumac (I did not have Sumac so did not use)
See the full recipe at fooddolls.com for specific directions and ingredient amounts. Because I made no substitutions or changes, I’m sending you directly to their website.
In a nutshell:
- Place the chicken in a dish.
- Sprinkle with seasonings.
- Smother the tops with hummus.
- Place the chopped and halved veggies and olives around the sides.
- Sprinkle the feta on top.
- Drizzle olive oil over the whole thing.

My whole family loved this dish which sealed the deal to put it in the regular healthy meal rotation! Since it’s a one dish meal, you can simply plate and enjoy. If you want to add a little something on the side to ensure leftovers or add visual interest, I suggest a side salad with Italian or Caesar dressing, purple potatoes or bright yellow summer squash.
