  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
  • ½ cup hummus , any flavor like classic, garlic, jalapeño...
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs, can use GF variety
  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • salt + pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with salt and pepper, patting down to keep seasoning in place.
  • Coat chicken in hummus by spreading a thin, even layer of hummus on one side of your chicken breasts using a spatula. On a separate plate, place your panko bread crumbs into a thin layer. Place breasts hummus-side down into panko to coat, then repeat for all chicken breasts.
  • In a non-stick skillet, heat 1 tbs. olive oil and when hot, place one breast in at a time, crust side down to brown – about two minutes. flip over carefully and cook another 2 minutes, then remove from pan and place onto sheet pan lined with tin foil and sprayed lightly with cooking spray. repeat for all chicken breasts, wiping out pan with paper towel and heating more oil before cooking next breast.
  • Bake sheet pan of chicken for 13-15 minutes, or until cooked through. Let chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing!
