Wow! Fantastic! I had to make some changes, but this was still extraordinary. Let me try to remember the changes: (1) I baked it in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes, (2) kept the chicken breasts whole, putting them (seasoned) at the bottom of the packet and then dumped the mixed veggies on top and with drizzled olive oil, (3) made with WAY more veggies and herbs and spices, and (4) left out the pepperoni. Everything was so juicy that I literally had to drain the contents of the packets before serving, so we added the cheese on the plated food rather than into the packets. Fantastic!
I made this for the dinner the other night as it used a lot of leftovers I had in the fridge. I did it in the oven and loved the fact that it was practically a no mess dinner. The chicken was lovely & moist and packed with flavour, hubby & I both thoroughly enjoyed it!
This is a very tasty recipe. And quick too! I baked it in the oven at 350 for about 35-40 minutes instead of grilling. The only thing that I would add is when it's being served, add some tomato sauce of some sort on top (which was my husbands idea, but I agree!) because it turned out a little bit dry. Can't wait to try it again with that addition. Thanks!
