Chicken & Vegetables in Foil Packets

Chicken & Vegetables in Foil Packets

This week at I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC), we are welcoming Ellie Krieger! She will be IHCC's featured chef for the next six months! Welcome Ellie! :)

As a renowned registered dietitian specializing in nutrition and health, Ellie focuses on offering real life nutritional advice without gimmicks and extreme diets. She advocates and creates recipes that bring together healthy and delicious.

  To say "Hello!" to Ellie, I've cooked her one-pot chicken and rice dish. To say "Hello!" the second time, I choose to cook her chicken and vegetables in foil packets dish.

Recipe adapted from here.

(Serves 2)

1 large skinless chicken thigh, cut into 2 chunks
1 medium leek, cut into thin strips
1 medium purple carrot, shaved
1 cup pumpkin shaves
4 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon coconut amino
1/2 tablespoon molasses sugar
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

How to:

1. Preheat oven to 200°C.

2. Place two sheets of 30cm long heavy-duty foil paper on a table. Put one chicken chunk in the center of each. Top with leek, purple carrot, pumpkin and tomatoes. Whisk together coconut amino, molasses sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil in a small bowl and drizzle over the chicken and vegetables.

3. Bring the foil edges up to the center, allowing some space on top. Then, seal the edges tightly. Transfer both packets onto a baking tray lined with baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes.

4. Serve with steamed rice.

  1. This dish looks very yummy ! Drooling!

  2. This looks really delicious and flavourful. I love all the vegetables in there, and totally love the no-fuss-no-mess approach of cooking in tinfoil.

  3. The flavor and convenience of cooking in a foil packet is unmatched. I find myself reaching for this easy and tasty approach more and more.

    1. I'm still trying to find a balance in the cooking time. The cooking time difference between using cold chicken and room temperature chicken varies by almost 50%. :S

  4. I love your enthusiasm to say hello to Ellie twice! This recipe really appeals to me for the same reasons Sue mentioned. It's a great way to highlight seasonal veggies and such easy cleanup! I'm definitely going to save this recipe to make. It's so perfect for a busy weeknight. Thanks for sharing:)

  5. This looks delicious! I like everything that goes into that packet!

  6. Two hellos to Ellie! ;-) This one looks fabulous too. I love foil packets for the flavor and moistness they provide--as well as the easy clean up!
