Hummus Crusted Chicken and Vegetables

I love to ride my bike, but I don’t feel safe riding on the streets, so I didn’t ride much when I was in Austin.  Since I’ve been back in Dallas, I have been trying to take advantage of being so close to White Rock Lake.  I rode around the lake this weekend, and saw a link to another trail.  I tried the new route called the Santa Fe Trail.  I went as far as Beacon St. and decided to turn around. I still have no idea how far that trail goes.  Once I got back to where I started, I made my way around the lake fighting the wind, but that silly old wind had nothing on me.  I beat the wind! It was a lot of fun and great exercise.  I think I’ll try to ride at least one time a week to get a little variations to my workouts.

This is by far the best main dish recipe that I’ve made from Pinterest.  I adapted this recipe from the Gimmesomeoven pin.  I never thought of cooking with hummus, but now I think it will become a standard on my grocery shopping list.  Not only was it good on the chicken, it made the vegetables taste AMAZING!!

Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts
Hummus (I used the garlic flavored one)
Squash
Okra
2 Lemons
1 tsp. of Paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste

I wish I would have added more vegetables to my dish. Next time I’m going to add zucchini and tomatoes. I will also put a larger quantity of vegetables in the pan.  The vegetables were SOOO good.
