Healthy and fast, this Chicken Milano Foil Packet Recipe is great for a weeknight. The chicken is moist and flavorful, and clean up is a breeze!
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8–10 oz each)
- 1/4 cup prepared Italian dressing (light or reduced calorie works)
- 8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, plus more for topping
- 1/4 cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes (dried, not in oil)
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
Butterfly each of the chicken breasts open and cut into two thinner pieces so you have a total of 4 pieces of chicken.
Cut 4 large pieces of heavy-duty foil. Place one piece of chicken in the center of each piece of foil. Top with 1 tablespoon of Italian dressing, 1/4 of the mushrooms, 1/4 of the basil, and 1/4 of the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Bring up 2 sides of the foil and seal. Fold the opposite edges to form a packet. There should be some room in the package for heat circulation. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Place the foil packets on a baking sheet, and place in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the juice of the chicken is no longer pink, and when a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast registers 165ºF.
Fold back the foil of each packet and top with the Parmesan cheese. Add more basil, if desired.
