Hummus, Chicken & Avocado Flat Bread

Chicken meets hummus and avocado in this quick, filling and amazingly delicious baked flat bread. Lean chicken and the chickpeas in the hummus give a good amount of protein to help you stay full longer. The creaminess of the hummus and avocado make it easy not to miss the more traditional cheese often on baked flat bread.

Helpful Tip

This is a flexible recipe and you can easily vary the bread base and the toppings to suit your preferences. Try whole grain bread slices, pita, English muffins or tortillas as the base. Optional toppings include baby spinach, sliced olives, hot sauce etc. You can also make a no-bake version using the same ingredients by not heating the base with the hummus, tomato and chicken.
