Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Cut the ham into matchstick pieces. If using the chinese sausage, boil in water for a minute or two before cutting.
  2. On each pieces of foil, place one piece of chicken, ham, bamboo shoot, ginger, green onion, and cilantro leaf. Fold the foil in half to form a triangle. Fold the edges to seal.
  3. Place the packets in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until the chicken is opaque when cut, 10 to 12 minutes.
