Hummus and Greek Chicken- Perfect Light summer food!

This was the yummy plate that I made for myself a couple of days ago. It was the best plate of food. Fresh cucumbers, red pepper slices, warmed pita bread, Greek salad, tangy Greek chicken and freshly made hummus. Delicious!
I will share the recipe for the Hummus and also for the chicken. I have no source for the chicken, as I have been making it for years.  I found the Hummus recipe on The Cozy Apron. I did modify it to my personal tastes.
Zesty Hummus
2 cans chick peas, rinsed and drained
2 Lemons, zested and juiced
1 Tbsp. water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 -3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. oregano
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until it reaches a creamy consistency.

Greek Chicken
2/3 cup olive oil
3/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. dried oregano
3 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Combine all the ingredients in a large skillet, cover and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. You can remover the chicken and cover the pan and continue to cook the sauce until it reduces some if you like. Usually I skip that because I live with 5 males and they are anxiously standing over the stove asking if it ready or not!
