Moroccan Hummus & Pine Nut Crusted Chicken

We have quite the weakness for hummus.  It's a staple in our house, and it's pretty simple to make at home.  Simply process garbanzo beans (chickpeas), tahini, garlic, and olive oil in a food processor until creamy.  You can add cumin, paprika, and/or lemon juice if desired, too.  Hummus is great as a substitute for butter, dips, dressings, and mayonnaise because it's super flavorful and creamy, it's lower in calories (comparatively speaking), and it's packed with lots of vitamins and nutrients.  

I decided to incorporate hummus into a Moroccan-style chicken dish for dinner last night.  The chicken breasts were slathered in creamy hummus, seasoned with Moroccan spices, and baked in a delightful pine nut crust.  Healthy, flavorful and delicious!  I served this over smoked paprika & garlic rice.
