Paleo & Whole 30 Hummus Crusted Chicken

28 Feb

Don’t you just love it when an idea translates to a successful delicous dinner?  I do!  Yummy, pretty easy, and will be great left over (hence the amount).  This is a high protein, low starch, healthy carb meal.  The chicken will be moist and packed with flavor!

Paleo and Whole 30 Hummus crusted chicken

Ingredients:

One batch of my paleo & Whole 30 Hummus, recipe here

4-5 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast

4-5 pounds of stir fry veggies: julienned onion, bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash; chopped cauliflower, broccoli; baby carrot.

2 jalapeno peppers, diced

3 tbl. ghee

1 tbl. red pepper flake

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne powder

Kosher salt

Pepper

Method:

Prepare the hummus as described.  Preheat oven to 375°F.  Season both sides of chicken breast with salt and pepper.  Line two baking sheets with foil, spread both sides of chicken with hummus and lay on foil lined baking sheets.  Bake chicken at 375°F until cooked through, 40 minutes in my oven.  In a large pot melt ghee over medium high heat.  Add veggies, red pepper flake, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, and salt and pepper and sauté to desired tenderness.  Serve chicken with/over veggies.
