Undercover Foil Pack Chicken
This easy recipe has tons of flavor. This chicken is moist and tender. I prefer boneless, skinless chicken breasts and I cook them in individual foil packs with sun-dried tomatoes, onions, peppers, and seasonings. Ready in 30 minutes, this recipe is great for busy weeknights.
The combination of vegetables and seasonings are endless. You can also easily adapt the recipe to fit what your family likes. Additionally, it’s a great recipe to get the kids involved and make their own packages.
Add or omit any vegetables you like. I adore sun-dried tomatoes (and if you’re not sure, I highly recommend you try them!). Broccoli, snap peas, and cauliflower would be good in them. As would potatoes. If you use potatoes, cut them thin so they’ll get done by the time the chicken is.
Another tip regarding the chicken, pound or cut the chicken so that each breast is about the same thickness. This way each pack will cook in the same amount of time. Furthermore, you can use boneless, skinless chicken thighs if you prefer. They will take slightly longer to cook.
Finally, put as much or as little of the seasoning as you like. I really like a lot of seasoning. But, you may not. Most kids don’t like a lot of seasoning. Therefore, always adjust recipes to fit you and your family. (Albeit, baking is a different story, but when just cooking you can adjust to your heart’s content!)
