dijon garlic chicken packets


i've just learned about packet cooking and thought i'd create one of my own recipes...we tried it out today at lunch and were happy with the results...since it's pretty much an entire meal, all we had with it was some slices of sunflower seed bread...

  1. Important: take care to slice the vegetables thinly so that they will be cooked at the same time as the chicken when the timer goes off
  2. Tear off 6 pieces of foil about 12 x 16 each
  3. With the shiny side facing up
  4. Portion out the matchstick sized carrots in the center of each piece of foil
  5. "then carefully fan out 4-6 of the thin potato slices atop each of the carrot piles"
  6. "then place one or two of the thin onion slices atop each of the carrot / potato piles"
  7. "then flatten out each chicken breast just large enough so you can place each one atop each of the carrot / potato / onion piles covering them completely"
  8. Everything should be nicely hidden under that chicken !
  9. Now for the sauce---mix together the mustard
  10. Pepper
  11. Tarragon
  12. Lime juice
  13. Chicken broth and minced garlic
  14. With a small spoon
  15. Carefully add some of the sauce equally atop all chicken breasts
  16. Now you need to loosely seal the foil packets but do not fold them flat
  17. By folding them securely
  18. But loosely
  19. You should have a pocket of empty space around the food inside
  20. This is important because steam will be created and that is what cooks the food
  21. Place the sealed packets in a 13 x 9 pan or on a 15 x 10 jelly roll pan
  22. Bake them in a 400 oven for 30 minutes
  23. To serve
  24. Simply place each packet on a dinner plate and all your guests need to do is cut a slit in the foil to access their meal !
