Chicken cooked in parchment paper

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken papillotte

4 chicken breast
1/2 large tomato, diced
1/4 onion
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon garam masala
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon chili powder

Recipe Directions for Chicken papillotte

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Place a baking sheet on the middle rack.

  2. 2. Season the chicken with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Prep the rest of the ingredients and toss everything except the chicken in a medium bowl. Season the mixture with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.

  3. 3. Tear off a sheet of parchment paper about twenty inches long. Fold it in half (like you're closing a book) then open it back up. Put 1/4 of the vegetable mixture in the middle of the center fold. Put 1 chicken breast half on top of the vegetables. Cover the chicken with another 1/4 of the vegetable mixture.

  4. 4. Fold the paper over so that the two ends meet (closing a book again). Beginning at either end of the center fold, make overlapping diagonal folds so that you make a tight pocket around the food. The end result will be a half-crescent shape that looks sort of like a fried pie.

  5. 5. Repeat steps 3. and 4. for the second papillote.

  6. 6. Place each papillote on the baking sheet in the oven for 25 minutes.

  7. 7. Put each packet on a plate and cut the flat end open with scissors or a sharp knife. Slide the paper out from under the ingredients (like you're pulling a table cloth out from underneath a set table.)

  8. 8. Add more salt, pepper and cilantro to taste.
