This middle eastern chickpea spread is a delicious source of protein. The store bought stuff is ok, but I really love the taste of hummus made from scratch.

So here’s what I made for supper the other night. The chicken patties are made with ground dark meat chicken. I added in a little toasted sesame oil and onion powder for flavor. Mix it all together, make little patties, and cook them in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. I used cooking spray rather than oil in the pan, and I let the pan get hot before adding …
