Secrets of Success

One Step Wonder With Foil



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!

More Information:

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 - by DOTTYDRUID
  • 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 - by FIREDEMONARTY
