Naan with Chicken and Hummus

The other day I bought some Naan, because I thought it would pair great with other Middle Eastern ingredients for a quick snack or meal. I kept the Middle Eastern theme going by incorporating spices such as cinnamon, cumin, coriander, and hummus.  This recipe is super easy and takes only 20 minutes. The first batch had an earthy/spicy taste to them and the second, kept those flavors with a hint of sweetness, by sprinkling cinnamon sugar on top of the hummus.


  • Naan flatbread
  • 1 lb chicken tenderloins
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Shredded cheese
  • Baby spinach
  • Hummus (I like plain, but roasted red pepper work great.)

Naan with Hummus and Spinach


First, preheat the oven to 400 F, or pan fry them which takes a little less time. Line a cookie sheet with aluminium foil. Put the paprika, cumin, coriander, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and pepper into a bowl and mix together. Place each tenderloin in the mixture and coat both sides, place on the cookie sheet. Repeat until all the chicken is seasoned. Put the chicken in the oven for 13-15 minutes or pan fry them on medium, 5 minutes each side. With about 2 minutes left for the chicken to cook. Put naan in the toaster on medium. When the naan pops out, immediately spread with hummus. Now if you would like a sweeter dish you can sprinkle a mixture of 50/50 cinnamon sugar on top of the hummus. If you don’t have an actual container of this use 1/4 tsp of sugar and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Place a few baby spinach leaves on top of the hummus and stack a cooked chicken tenderloin on top of the spinach. Sprinkle cheese on top of the chicken and place back in the oven for 1-2 minutes or until cheese starts to melt. Serve and enjoy.
