How to Cook Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
A fantastic way to cook chicken breasts is by baking them in foil in the oven. The foil helps keep the meat nice and moist while cooking. You can also buy frozen seafood products online.
What you put inside the foil is only limited by your imagination, but to make things easier, I have included a great recipe below.
Chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
10 – 15
Kalamata Olives Pitted and Chopped
8 – 10 Sun-Dried Tomatoes Cut Into Thin Strips
4 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of Freshly Chopped Basil
2 Tablespoons of Freshly Chopped Parsley Salt and Pepper to Taste
Step 1: Preheat Oven to 450 Degrees F
Step 2: In a bowl, combine the olives, olive oil, tomatoes, basil, parsley, peppe,r and salt.
Step 3: Cut 8 Squares of Aluminum Foil (Cut them large, about 18 inches square)
Step 4: Grab 2 squares of foil and place one on top of the other.
Step 5: Grease the foil with some olive oil
Step 6: Place a chicken breast in the center of the foil and spoon some of the tomato and olive mixture on top
Step 7: Loosely fold the foil over the chicken forming a tent and seal tightly
Step 8: Repeat this process for the remaining chicken breasts
Step 9: Place the wrapped chicken breasts on a baking sheet and place in the pre-heated oven
Step 10: Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until done. To check for doneness, cut a small slit in the foil to allow the steam to escape and then carefully unfold the foil. Check for doneness with an instant-read thermometer. The internal temperature should read 160 degrees F.
