This week I found a super easy recipe in the Betty Crocker cooking basics book, and of course added a few ideas of my own. This is a super easy recipe for a family meal that will please everyone in the family; especially the dishwasher! You cook the meal in foil on the BBQ so there’s no pots or pans to clean!
Recipe serves 4
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 1 and 1/2 pounds).
1 small red onion – slide into rounds and then halved.
16 pitted kalamata olives -halved.
8 thinly sliced lemon rounds.
2 cloves garlic – minced.
24 grapes or cherry tomatoes.
1 can marinated artichoke hearts.
4 Tbsp of the artichoke marinades reserved.
olive oil (about 1 tsp per breast).
1/2 cup Mediterranean flavored feta cheese.
a pinch of dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
Spread a large piece of aluminum foil on counter. Place tsp olive oil on foil, add chicken breast.
To each breast drizzle 1 tbsp of marinade, add oregano, salt, pepper, and then top with red onion.
Place equal amounts of tomatoes, olive, and artichoke hearts on foil, and position two lemon slices on top of chicken stack. Add a good serving of feta (1 tbsp or more) to each chicken stack and then fold aluminum foil over to create a packet. Place packet seam side down on another sheet of foil and fold over to create juice tight packet.
On a grill heated to medium high heat, cook the packets for 25 minutes, turning once at mid-point. The chicken must be cooked until juices run free of blood and internal chicken temperature is 170 degrees.
When opening packets keep your distance, make small pierce in aluminum to allow hot steam to escape in order to avoid potential burns.
And that’s, time for a great but easy dinner!
I’m very proud to share this recent 5-Star review on my new novel VEYRON.
