I was challenged last night by a friend to come up with a healthy, quick easy and cheap. Little did she know I had this one up my sleeve. This can be done so many different ways… so have fun with it.
2-3 Red potatoes sliced thin
1/4 Bell pepper sliced thin
1/4 Small onion or 1-2 green onions sliced thin
2 Mushrooms sliced thin
Garlic sliced thin
1 Oz fresh herbs: Basil, tarragon, cilantro or parsley (choose one)!
Drizzle of quality olive oil
Splash of white wine
Salt and cracked pepper (I use Goya Adobo and cracked pepper)!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees:
Tip: Use good quality heavy duty aluminum foil. Do not over stuff the pouches.
Place a large piece of aluminum foil on your cutting board or counter. Drizzle a little olive oil on the foil. Place chicken or fish in the center of foil. place 3-4 garlic slice over chicken or fish. Cover fish with potatoes first; then remaining vegetables and herbs. Drizzle a very little amount of olive oil and and season with salt and pepper. Splash a little white wine and fold up the pouch without any gaps for steam or liquid to escape. Each foil pouch serves one person. Get creative and let your family make their own using the ingredients they like. Use smaller pieces of chicken or fish for children.
Place pouches on the oven rack and cook for 40-45 minutes.
Tip: Fish cooks much faster than chicken; adjust cooking time if necessary. I tend to slice my vegies thinner in my fish pockets so the they cook evenly with the fish.
