I don't know the name of the cookbook where we got this recipe. It was at a friend's house, who practices Orthodox Judaism, so this recipe was from one of her kosher cookbooks. Needless to say, it was memorable, simple, and delicious (and kosher)! I have made this many, many times since then. You can find Terra Chips in the chips aisle at the grocery store, or sometimes in the organic section. They come in several flavors/varieties. My favorite is "Original." You can also vary the flavor with your choice of hummus, again, I use typical "original" flavors. It's a unique dish -- I don't think everyone will like it (like Dad, who is a picky "meat & potatoes" man).
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts - it helps if they are pounded flat or halved. You should end up with 4-6 halves (or flattened breasts).
8 oz. hummus, your choice of flavor
1 pkg. Terra chips, crushed
2-3 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
1 Tblsp. Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Carefully trim any excess fat off the chicken. Place the crushed Terra chips in a shallow bowl (I find it easier to crush the chips while they’re still in the bag.) Don’t crush them too finely – you want a nice course texture and enough brilliant colors showing.
Spread the hummus on each side of each chicken breast, then dip/press into the crushed Terra chips. Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Heat the olive oil in a small shallow pan, then add the garlic, stirring it at a med-high heat until the garlic begins to color. Then, carefully drizzle this oil/garlic mixture over the chicken breasts. In a pinch for time, I've drizzled the oil & garlic on the top w/out cooking it & it turned out fine, or even omitting the garlic/oil altogether.
Bake for 45 min. or until cooked and tender.
