NEW  Baked Chicken Parcels Recipe

 

 

Ingredients:

1 cup mushrooms (finely sliced)
2 cups potatoes (finely sliced )

Directions:


Take each chicken breast and make three slits on each (top side of breast). Place all ingredients in a large bowl or pot and combine fully (using hands or large wooden spoon). Cut four sheets of aluminium foil (large enough to make four parcels). Place one chicken breast and a handful of additional ingredients on each sheet of aluminium foil. Close around edges to make a square parcel shape (make sure each parcel is completely sealed and juices don’t leak). Do this four times to make four separate parcels. Place chicken parcels on baking tray. Bake in preheated oven at 375F for approximately 20 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Serve with side salad.
