Chicken Packet or Chicken Papillote
I typically do pouch cooking in two cases. One when I'm camping and the other time is usually with fish. I had fish for lunch today, but I really wanted an easy, not-messy meal for tonight. I decided to do a chicken packet. Usually I do foil when camping and parchment paper in the oven, but I was out of parchment paper so I made the packets in foil. This is a method not a recipe. (I used the Sweet & Sour sauce from THIS recipe.)
4 pieces of foil or parchment paper about 16" long by whatever width the package is.
4 small chicken breasts diced into 1" cubes (try and make them all the same size)
vegetables (carrots, sugar snap peas, onions, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, water chestnuts are all good candidates depending on the flavor of your sauce)
3-4 tbsp sauce per packet (about 1 cup) (sweet & sour, stir fry sauce, bar-b-q, etc)
Place diced chicken a little right of center on each packet. Follow with diced vegetables. Pour sauce over each pile of chicken and vegetables. Fold the top of the packets over the chicken and vegetables and seal the edges tightly. Cook at 375 for 25 minutes.
