Did you know May 13th is National Hummus Day? Today I’m linking up with the Recipe ReDux to share a new hummus recipe that’s perfect for a satisfying snack or appetizer that can also work great in a meal. So often, we think of hummus & pita or hummus with baby carrots, but there are a bunch of other ways to enjoy it.

Lately, I’ve been really digging hummus as a marinade. The first time I made this, I couldn’t believe I’d never tried it before. It’s already become one of my “in the vault” recipes. Aside from being delicious, it’s also packed with protein and happens to be gluten-free. Enjoy with your favorite veggies and (yes) pita, or pair with a simple salad for a satisfying meal that’s cooks up quickly.


Hummus-Marinated Chicken


  • ½ cup hummus
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast tenders



  1. To make marinade, whisk together hummus, yogurt, and olive oil. Thin out with water.
  2. Place chicken in a ziplock bag. Pour marinade in and shake up to coat chicken. Allow to marinate in the fridge at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  4. Remove marinated chicken tenders from Ziplock and place on baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 20-25 minutes.

Serves 4
