Easy, Versatile Chicken Dinner Wrapped in Foil

Cooking does not have to be difficult or time consuming! My husband heard this method of cooking while listening to a program on Minnesota Public Radio.

The basic recipe is this:

Coat chicken breasts with olive oil (a tsp or so for each piece; just enough so it’s coated). Place them in a foil packet and bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temp reaches 162°F

Simple, right? Not to mention versatile. You can add vegetables and spices to your liking and have an easy clean-up dinner in 20 minutes. We added half a bay leaf per breast, fresh basil from our garden, onion, and thin slices of garlic with a bit of salt and pepper. While the chicken is cooking, make some rice to go with it! Add a little butter and lemon juice to the rice while it’s cooking.

Easy peasy, Lemon Squeazy!
