Have Recipe – Will Share

Finding a recipe that is easy and that your family will like can sometimes be a challenge.  This recipe is one that you can prepare ahead of time and your family will love.  But, even more, you can prepare this recipe while you get ready in the morning and serve it for dinner.  It works great for babysitter meals instead of leaving money for pizza.  Your kids will eat it and it’s healthy. 

Baked Foil Chicken

1 frozen chicken breast per person
Foil for each chicken breast
1 TBSP. of Minced garlic for each chicken breast – My family loves it so I buy it by the jug-full
1/2 – 1 onion – sliced
1 container of fresh, sliced mushrooms
1 tsp of olive oil for each one
Salt / Pepper
Cooking Spray

Preheat your oven to 350° as soon as you get up in the morning.  Take out frozen chicken breasts.  Prepare a foil packet for each serving by using a 8-12″ of foil per packet and spraying it with cooking spray.  Slice up the onion.  Place a chicken breast on each foil packet and top with garlic, onions and mushrooms to your liking (omit what you don’t like).  Pour 1 tsp. of olive oil on each one and sprinkle with salt / pepper.  Wrap up each foil packet and place on a cookie sheet.  Place in the oven and bake for about 1 hour.  When done take out and place in the refrigerator for dinner later.  For dinner, take each one out and unwrap onto a plate – warm in the microwave for a couple of minutes.  Dinner is done.

I am no chef and don’t even play one on TV, but I did get very good reviews from Grandma and my daughter last week when I had prepared them for dinner on a day I would not be home.  Grandma served them with a side of cooked vegetables. 

And yes, you can really make these with frozen chicken breasts because I did them exactly that way. 

In full disclosure, my daughter (16 months) is a very good eater and loves vegetables, onions, mushrooms and garlic. 

Prep time – 5 minutes. Cook time – 1 hour.  Dinner – DONE!
