Gluten Free Hummus Crusted Chicken

Gluten Free Hummus Crusted Chicken | Glutenfree-jenny.comThis Gluten Free Hummus Crusted Chicken recipe is good for you and great-tasting! Β It’s also easy and quick to make.




  • 2 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts (cut into four pieces if needed)
  • 1/2 cup hummus of your choice (homemade would be even better)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 lemon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with coconut cooking spray.

Place the chicken breasts in the dish. Using a spoon, scoop the 1/2 cup hummus into a measuring cup to avoid contaminating the rest of the hummus from the raw chicken. Put the remaining hummus away, and spoon hummus from the measuring cup on the chicken. Spread it around until the breasts are evenly coated.

Sprinkle the minced garlic, smoked paprika, cumin, and red chili powder on top of the chicken (or whatever seasonings you choose to use). Squeeze one lemon half over each chicken breast.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the hummus has crisped. Serve immediately.

  1. 450 degrees for 30 minutes seems high for boneless breasts. after preheating to 450, should the oven be turned down a bit to cook the chicken without drying it out? thanks! this sounds really good!

    • Karen,

      I agree, it sounded high to me too. My husband was the one that put it in the oven, and he said he put it in before it got to 450 (basically he forgot to preheat the oven :)). We also have pretty thick chicken breasts so keep that in mind. If you were concerned and had the time, I would cook at 350 and turn it to 450 at the end to crisp the top somewhat. Let me know what you think.
