Using a large bowl, add all ingredients (shredded chicken, hummus, celery, red onion, bell pepper, mustard, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper); stir until well combined.
Refrigerate until cold.
I used rotisserie chicken to make this Hummus Chicken Salad. However, you could cook 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and dice or shred them instead. Grilling the chicken breasts would add an extra layer of flavor!
