Chicken Foil Steamer

This meal was a delicious little experiment modified from this recipe to suit my own tastes. I subtracted the stuffing, and added a few extra gems. Its a great light dinner that will leave you feeling healthy and satisfied.

Ingredients: (Per steam pack)

  1. 1 C. chopped broccoli

  2. 1/4 C. diced red onion

  3. 6 oz. chicken breast- sliced thin

  4. cheese (I used Pepper Jack)

  5. 2 slices pre-cooked bacon, crumbled

  6. 1 T. Creamy Italian dressing

Materials:

  1. large sheet of foil

  2. cooking spray

  3. cookie sheet

  4. oven (set to 400)

Let’s Get Started:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 400.

  • Lay a large sheet of foil on the cookie sheet, and coat generously with cooking oil.

  • Place the chicken breast in the center of the foil. You want the chicken to be this so it will cook completely. I actually had to slice mine in half.

  • Combine the broccoli and onions and cover the chicken.

  • Layer the cheese and bacon on top of the veggies. I didn’t use a lot of cheese, but you can always add what you think is necessary.

  • Drizzle the dressing over the top.

  • Loosly wrap the foil around the chicken and fold to seal. Make sure you’re leaving room for heat to circulate within. Don’t suffocate your chicken!

  • Slide into the oven for 20-25 minutes. You need to know whether your oven typically cooks quickly or slowly. You can’t check for progress once it’s baking.

  • When you remove the packet, puncture it to allow the steam to escape.

  • Once you’ve seen the steam escape, feel free to unwrap and admire your creation.

MMM…

I served my chicken with mashed potatos and gravy. Next time I’m going to try chopping up the chicken dish and adding it to a side salad for an even healthier option.

Happy Cooking!
