"This is a meal I could happily eat every week. Luckily, it's pretty healthy and easy to make! I got this recipe, and slightly tweaked it, from my current issue of Eating Well magazine. I absolutely love the flavor and texture combinations. I hope you do, too!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Position oven rack to upper third of oven and preheat the broiler to high.

Step 2

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Step 3

Toss the chicken cubes with 1 T of the oil, cumin, paprika, cayenne, and 1/8 t. of the salt. Spread evenly over the foil-lined pan. Broil the chicken until just cooked through - approx. 7-10 min. (I think I broiled mine a bit longer than the 10 min. because I wanted my chicken to be well-browned - use your judgement.)

Step 4

Meanwhile, mash the garlic with the remaining 1/8 t. of salt into a paste using a fork. Transfer this to a medium-sized bowl and whisk in the lemon juice and the remaining 2 T. of the oil. Add the chicken and let it sit for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 5

Divide the hummus into 4 shallow bowls. Tope with the chicken and any remaining dressing from the bowl. Artfully arrange the the remaining ingredients: cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, and parsley.

Step 6

As you said, I could have this every week! OMG - that chicken! I made a homemade garlic hummus that was smooth and silky - such a great complement for the lemony garlicky yumminess of the chicken and the dressing. My parsley looked pretty end-of-life, so subbed cilantro. Next time (and there will be many NEXT TIMES), I'll still cut the recipe in half, but double the entire dressing, because we both wanted a bit more. Ashamed to say that I almost licked the plate. This was perfectly fresh and refreshing on a hot, steamy, thundery Florida summer evening. Bet this would be good with shrimp, too. Into my Best of 2022 file this goes... Made for play in For Your Consideration at 4Food Friends and Fun.

What a great healthy and filling lunch we had today. Wouldn't change a thing. Easy to make and I used purchased garlic hummus. My hubby really liked it too and he's not a big fan of cucumber - still gave it a big thumbs up. : )
