Spiced Chicken With Hummus And Tomato Cucumber Salad


For the chicken:

1 lb. chicken (I used chicken drumsticks, but breasts or thighs are fine too!)

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. curry powder

1/2 tsp. paprika

black pepper + salt to taste

1 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

2 teaspoons olive oil

For the salad:

half of a large cucumber, diced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half

2 cups of raw spinach

4 tablespoons of your favorite hummus brand, divided

4 teaspoons olive oil, divided

salt + pepper to taste


Remove chicken from packaging, and place on a plate. Generously season chicken evenly with all of the powdering seasonings. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium heat in a large skillet. Once oil is hot, place seasoned chicken on skillet, and cover. Let it simmer for approx. 5 minutes, then flip chicken to cook the other side. Let cook for 5-8 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices are clear. 

Place two tablespoons of hummus on a plate, and drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Arrange salad next to hummus with spinach, topped with tomatoes and cucumbers. Place chicken on top, and season with salt and pepper to taste, and maybe another drizzle of olive oil.
