"steamed" Chicken Cutlets in Packages

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Zanna_409104061

This creates a great aroma when the packages are first opened at the table--the packages hold the flavors in the chicken. I'm a huge chicken fan, and this is a very simple but tasty way to serve it.

Oh yum, this was good. I added some sliced onion and no-salt seasoning mix. Served with fresh corn on the cob and homeade coleslaw. Will make again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Rinse the chicken breasts, and either cut or pound the chicken to create cutlets of about equal size.
  3. Tear off squares of aluminum foil (enough to wrap around the chicken and then some) and place each chicken breast on a square.
  4. Slice the tomato (es) and place a slice or two atop of each breast.
  5. Drizzle the chicken with the olive oil.
  6. Sprinkle the basil on top of the chicken breasts evenly.
  7. Add salt and pepper to each breast.
  8. Loosely fold up the foil over each cutlet, leaving both room for air space but folded up enough not to allow oil to drip out.
  9. Place all packages in a large baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
  10. Serve while still packaged; allow each diner to open his/her package at the table.
