Chicken Breasts Cooked In Parchment Paper

I just cannot believe how easy it is to cook a meal in parchment paper.  The chicken breasts came out very tender and flavorful.  If you have not tried this method of cooking before you might want to give it a try.



2 Chicken Breasts

8 Strips of Organic Bacon

1/2 Cup Chopped Green Onions

6 Chopped Garlic Cloves

1 Cup Salsa

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

1 Chopped Jalapeno Pepper


Preheat your oven to 350° F.  In two large pieces of parchment paper place 4 strips each of the organic bacon.  On top of the bacon sprinkle the chopped green onions, chopped jalapeno and chopped garlic.  Place the chicken breasts on top of the bacon pile and salt and pepper the tops of the chicken.  Place 1/2 cup salsa on top of each chicken breast.  Close up the parchment paper up around the contents and tie the top with butcher string.  Place in a baking pan and cook for 1 1/2 hours.  Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.  Open the parchment packages and transfer to either a serving platter or individual plates.  Serve with a green salad and diced pineapple.  Serves 2
