- Parchment paper
- 1 chicken breast
- 1/2 red pepper, sliced
- 1/2 yellow pepper sliced
- 1/4 red onion, sliced
- 3 tablespoons salsa
- 1 tablespoon Mexican cheese blend
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or non stick cooking spray
(note: you can buy pre cut veggies fresh or frozen if you want.)
If you are not comfortable with cutting on your own, you can buy precut veggies from the produce department or buy a bag of precut frozen peppers and onions. If buying fresh, just be sure to use them within a few days and check them first, they do go bad quickly once they are cut.
Getting chicken breast individually trimmed and wrapped are nice to use since you can freeze them and use one at a time.
Cooking in parchment makes a really moist and flavorful meal. Sealing the food in a packet helps the food steam and not dry out, and locks in your seasonings and sauces.
It also makes for a really easy clean up!
