One Step Wonder With Foil


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Even though I love to cook, sometimes (ok... lots of times) I just don't have the time. I find that if I seal boneless skinless chicken breasts in individual foil packets with ingredients such as garlic, onion, vegetables, and spices and bake it at 425 for 30-35 minutes that the chicken always turns out moist and flavorful with lots of juices. I place the packets on a baking sheet for easy cleanup, and if there are leftovers, they are already wrapped and ready to go into the fridge!

There is no need for oil with this cooking method, though if you wanted to you could certainly add a little.

    I should imagine this is great if you have fussy kids or family members who dont like the same seasoning as the the rest. you can make a parcel to suit them. And it need not just be chicken. It could be fish, prawns,gammon, or steak to name but a few. absolutely wizard idea. Thank you emoticon

    Sounds like a great idea and it probably helps with portion control and removing the temptation to eat more of the delicious chicken. Definitely will try this! emoticon

    I'm not much of a cook - but I think even I could do this!
