Chicken Pesto Packets

Finally had the chance to cook my first real meal in the new place and I think I may have set the bar a little too high because it was delicious.

Chicken Pesto Packets
(make as many packets as you’d like)

  • boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • zucchini, thinly sliced
  • tomatoes, diced
  • prepared pesto (or homemade, I just didn’t have time)
  • red onion, thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • garlic is in the pic but NOT in the packet, totally failed to remember that pesto has plenty – apologies

On a 12″ piece of foil, drizzle 1 teaspoon of olive oil.  Place a chicken breast on the oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper.  Add a tablespoon of pesto and spread over the chicken.  Layer the veggies on the chicken and add another tablespoon of pesto.

Fold the foil around the chicken & veggies to make a packet. Bake (or grill) at 355º for 30 minutes. 
This turned out amazing and I served it with brown butter pasta that I will post at some point!  ENJOY!
