Hummus baked chicken with spinach and lemon, chilli breadcrumbs

Following on from my hummus recipe the other day, I had some left over and wanted to use it within another recipe, within cooking and not just as a dip.

I found this one on the internet which looked pretty good:

And I supplemented it with another recipe I found using spinach and breadcrumbs:

It was simple enough to do; spreading the hummus on the chicken breasts and placing over the chopped vegetables and sprinkling over lemon juice and some paprika.

The breadcrumbs were also pretty fast and resulted in a really nice smell while cooking.

The two recipes worked really well in combination and it was a good way of using up the hummus and a nice take on spinach to give some different flavours.  Sometimes I can find spinach a bit bland but I like to eat it due to the health benefits so this was a great way of making it more interesting.  I really enjoyed the zesty flavour in the breadcrumbs from the lemon and my only change would be that next time would add more chilli (I used about 1/4 teaspoon of chilli powder rather than a whole chilli) to give it more of a kick.
