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!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 810 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

Instructions

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.
