You Can’t Cook? You CAN Make This! ~ Hummus Chicken | Roasted Brussel Sprouts | Zoodles

Guys…I can not express enough how easy I make cooking for myself and John. Even clean up can not be more than a 3-minute process! I have not timed myself on how long it takes to prep all my food, but I swear it has to be like…10-15 minutes…MAYBE! So, if you’re looking for a simple, gluten free, healthy dinner… grab your pen, paper, and grocery list for your next trip!

You Will Need: 

  • Olive Oil
  • No-Stick Spray (We use coconut oil)
  • Seasoning (I recommend Mrs. Dash, we have onion and herb, but any and all are good)!
  • Adobe
  • Garlic Powder
  • Brussel Sprouts (one bag is fine, we get fresh, not the mushy microwavable ewwy gross ones lol)
  • 1-2 zucchini (you will also need a spiralizer, any kind is acceptable)
  • 1 package of boneless/skinless chicken breast (John and I like the thin cut, but really whatever kind you want works)
  • 1 container of hummus (your favorite flavor, we like Roasted Red Pepper, or you can make your own…that will definitely take you more time, but hey…you have time, go for it!)

 CAN NOT FAIL INSTRUCTIONS…READY…GO!

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees (it can heat up while you’re prepping your food)!

Grab a tray, lay down aluminum foil, spray some coconut oil so the veggies do not stick.

Grab the brussel sprouts bag, cut them in half, put them on the tray!

DRIZZLE, I repeat…DRIZZLE olive oil over the veggies, do NOT DROWN THEM (you do not want to be eating olive oil only I promise you that one)! lol.

Lastly, sprinkle with favorite seasoning, I recommend any of Mrs. Dash seasonings, lots of flavor in every bottle!

Now, grab your tray and toss those in the oven (yes, they start cooking while you prep your chicken because it is super duper quick!) 🙂

NEXT

I use a glass dish, line with aluminum foil, and spray with coconut oil spray… AKA NO CLEAN UP!

So, now you have your foil sprayed, lay your chicken in the dish.

Sprinkle Adobe on one side and then flip and sprinkle the other side

Then, take your desired hummus with a fork and spread it all over those babies!

[[If you want, you can flip them and do the other side as well!]]

BAM! THAT WAS ALL YOU DO FOR YOUR CHICKEN! 

Crazy right!?

So, pop that sucker in the oven and let her cook with the veggies while we finish up with the zoodles!

ZOODLE TIME!

Grab your spiralizer and go to town!

Get your sautee pan, spray with olive oil, turn on your stove to about an 8 heat range

Plop your zoodles in the pan, let them heat up and push them around with a utensil of some sort

Add a DRIZZLE of olive oil and a SPRINKLE of garlic powder

Sautee them for like 5-7 min, it does NOT take long!

When finished cooking those, turn off your stove, take the whole pan and place in the oven while you are waiting for your chicken and veggies to finish up.

Overall the veggies should cook for about 25 min. (we like ours crispy like the pic above)

Hummus chicken (depending on the size of the chicken) 15-20 min.

Zoodles 5-7 min, then they sit in the oven to stay heated.

EAT EAT EAT!

Take everything out of the oven, place nicely on a pretty plate and viola!

You have made dinner even when you thought the only thing you could make was a bowl of cereal!

Here is where things get awesome though.

Dinner was delicious!! But UGH…who wants to clean!

Well, don’t fret! It only takes a few minutes!

Put any leftovers into containers for lunch the next day…that’s necessary.

Grab your aluminum foil off the veggie tray…TOSS IT!

Grab your aluminum foil out of your chicken dish…TOSS IT! 

Since you used a non-stick spray with your zoodles…you should be able to throw some soap/water/rinse/dry and finish!

Add your plates and utensils to the dishwasher…

NOW, ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR NIGHT!
