DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare a grill, or preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
  • Prepare 4 sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil to measure about 12 by 15-inches.
  • Fold in half crosswise to crease, then unfold.
  • Divide the spinach among the 4 foil sheets, placing it in the center of the bottom half.
  • Lightly coat both sides of each chicken breast with oil, then season with the Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper.
  • Place one chicken fillet in the center of each spinach portion.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the onions, tomatoes, olives, garlic, wine, basil, thyme, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and stir to combine.
  • Pile the tomato mixture on top of each chicken breast, spreading to cover evenly and allow any liquid to puddle around the chicken.
  • Top each portion with 1 ounce of cheese.
  • One at a time, fold the top of the foil over the chicken, and starting at the corner, fold the edges of foil over to tightly seal, each fold overlapping the previous one.
  • Place on the grill, or if using the oven, place the packets on a baking sheet and bake until the packages puff and the chicken is cooked through, about 12-18 minutes.
  • Remove from the grill or oven, and cut the tops of the packets open with a small, sharp knife.
  • Serve immediately either in the foil packets, or by removing the chicken, toppings and sauce to dinner plates.
