Roast Chicken Thighs With Hummus, Sweet Potato, Mushrooms & Sage

chicken, hummus, mushrooms, sweet potato....delicious!


This is a great, easy chicken dish that can be ‘dressed up or down’ based on the sides you choose.  My version is based on a Hummus Crusted Chicken recipe from Oprah Magazine’s March 2012 issue, the original uses chicken breasts but I’ve never made it that way.  If you’d like to, then reduce the roasting time to about 20 minutes.

I can feed my family twice making this dish unless my husband is particularly hungry and eats a lot of chicken.  Although it’s very low maintenance, I don’t typically make it on weeknights because the chicken takes about 35 – 40 minutes in the oven.  Prep is super fast (5 minutes) though and it’s delicious served with a wide variety of sides — i.e. barley, cous cous, pasta, rolls, pick your favorite!

Serves 4 – 6 people depending on appetites.


Chopped sweet potato & mushrooms

Both the mushrooms & sweet potato can be chopped ahead of time & left in the fridge, to make the prep even faster.



Marinate the chicken (salt, pepper, olive oil & garlic) day or night before, if you have time.
