An easy clean up meal.

This is my new favorite meal! So easy and healthy too. I substituted plum tomatoes for the Roma, and baked the foil packet at 375 for 25 minutes. It came out perfectly. I also love how easy it is to reduce or increase the servings with this recipe, since each serving uses exactly 1 zucchini and 2 tomatoes...what could be better?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place 1 chicken breast half, 2 sliced tomatoes and 1 sliced zucchini in each packet.
  2. Spoon 2 Tablespoons of basil pesto over each chicken.
  3. You can use 8 18 x 12 inch sheets of heavy duty foil if you don't want to purchase the foil packets.
  4. Make sure you double fold ends by folding 1/2 inch and then repeating the 1/2 inch fold.
  5. Remember to leave space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  6. Cover and grill packets 4 to 5 inches from medium heat.
  7. Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is no longer pink.
  8. To serve, cut a large"X" across top of packet to let steam escape.
  9. This also can be cooked in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes or until juices run clear.
