An easy summer slow cooker supper of chicken with creamy hummus and crunchy cucumber wrapped up in a soft pita. You'll be amazed at how yummy a few ingredients in your crock can be!
I was totally inspired by the hummus orzo I made a few weeks back. It was easy, creamy and flavorful. I bought a huge container of the Sabra hummus at Costco again and decided I needed to try another recipe using the delicious stuff.I started with some frozen boneless, skinless chicken thighs (also bought from Costco for 1.91 a pound in the frozen section). Then I added just a few spices and cooked for about 6 hours on low. The chicken got nice and tender and seasoned nicely. I then shredded the chicken and stirred in some hummus. I warmed some of the pitas (again a Costco find) and cut up some cucumber and served the chicken and cucumber on the pita. It was a perfect summer meal and TOTALLY easy. I didn't even thaw the chicken. Can't get much easier than that! Using the hummus is a way to add creaminess without saturated fat or dairy. If you like chicken salad but don't want all the mayo this could be a good way to make it...wheels are turning here! More hummus recipes to come soon :)
*For this recipe I used this Hamilton Beach 3 Quart Slow Cooker
