  • Put the chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap. Pound with the flat side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin until the chicken is flattened evenly and about 1/2-inch thick. Stir together the cumin, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and rub over both sides of the chicken.
  • Stir together hummus, sweet paprika and turmeric in a small microwave-safe bowl until well mixed. Stir in water (this helps lighten the mixture).
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and heat the oil. Saute the chicken, in batches if necessary, for 6 to 8 minutes, reducing the heat to medium if cooking too fast, until the chicken is golden brown and no longer pink in the center, turning once.
  • Meanwhile, cover the hummus mixture, and microwave on high for 45-60 seconds or until warm (don't over do it). Note: I find if the hummus is room temperature, warming is not necessary.
  • To serve, spoon the hummus onto individual plates or a platter. Place the chicken on top. Squirt over with lime juice.
