Cooking can be super easy. Here is a fool proof recipe that can be adapted many different ways.

Mediterranean Chicken Packets
taken from Everyday Food by Martha Stewart

You will need
  • heavy duty aluminum foil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 4 artichoke hearts (from a 14-ounce can), quartered
  • 12 Kalamata olives, halved and pitted
  • 4 teaspoons capers
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta (2 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 375˚. Place four 12-inch squares of foil down. Place one chicken breast on each piece of foil. Season with salt and pepper
2. Divide the tomatoes, artichokes, olives, capers, cheese and seasonings among the chicken. Sprinkle with oil. Fold foil over ingredients and crimp edges.
3. Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
4. Serve with potatoes, rice or noodles.

You can change the ingredients and seasonings to create different flavors! Or substitute fish like salmon or halibut for the chicken

  • mixing 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard and 2 teaspoons honey. Spread on the chicken breasts. Add carrots.
  • adding lemon slices, spring of thyme, garlic cloves and potatoes.
  • teriyaki sauce, julienned bell peppers and onions, broccoli florets.

This is also a great recipe for camping. Double wrap the chicken in heavy duty aluminum foil and place in the camp fire or on a rack set above the fire.
