Chicken Hummus

AuthorSabrinaCategory, , , , , , DifficultyBeginner

One of the easiest Chicken salads to make. It’s hearty and filled with protein and fiber. Makes a great lunch. You can bake, poach, or even grill the chicken. The choice is yours.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time20 mins

2 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
¾ cup prepared plain hummus
1 bag baby spinach
4 cups arugula
2 medium roma tomatoes, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 large lemon
Pinch of salt and black pepper
1 large avocado, sliced (optional)

1

Cube or shred cooled cooked chicken. I cook mine in the Instant pot, so I normally shred the chicken because it’s tender enough. Place chicken into bowl and combine with hummus. If there is a lot of meat, use a little more hummus. The chicken should be well coated, but now drowning in hummus.

2

Whisk together olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and black pepper. Place spinach and arugula into a large bowl. Pour dressing on top and and toss to coat.

3

To serve. Start by place ¼ of the spinach into 4 bowls. Add ¼ of chicken-hummus mixture on top, then slices, and avocado (optional). Serve with a little parmesan on top or as is.
