Chicken and Veggie Packets
Why I Love This Recipe
This combination of chicken and four different vegetable ingredients is delicious for an anytime entrée, with ingredients from your pantry.
Ingredients You'll Need
6 skinned and boned chicken-breast halves, trimmed
1 1/2 cups canned spaghetti sauce
1 pound zucchini, trimmed and thinly sliced
1 can (11 ounces) corn, drained
1 can (7 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 1/2 cups shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese
Heat the oven to 450°F. Tear off six sheets of aluminum foil, measuring approximately 12 x 18 inches. Coat a sheet of foil with a light coating of cooking spray and place a chicken breast on one half, about 3 inches from the center. Top the chicken with 1/4 cup sauce, then 1/2 cup zucchini, scant 1/4 cup corn, 2 tablespoons mushrooms and 1/4 cup cheese. Fold the foil over and roll up the edges, sealing securely. Carefully place 3 packets on each of 2 baking sheets. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand a few minutes before opening. Slide the contents of each packet onto a plate and serve.
