Hummus Crusted Chicken

I LOVE chicken! I love everything about chicken, BUT I can also get sick of eating the same chicken recipes over and over again. I love adding a new twist to the flavor, and hello! I love hummus! Perfect combination.
This chicken can be paired with your favorite vegetable, a salad, or a side of rice. I chose to make sweet potato chips with this recipe (as seen in the picture), but the options are endless! Check out the recipe for the sweet potato chips if that’s what you choose. http://monicawesolowski.com/sweet-potato-chips-ranch-dip/
