Mediterranean Chicken Packs Recipe

Prep Time : 20 Minutes
Start to Finish : 45 Minutes
4 servings

Ingredients :

  • 1 package (4 oz) crumbled tomato-basil feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 11/4 lb)
  • 4 plum (Roma) tomatoes, each cut into 3 slices
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped (1/3 cup)
  • 20 pitted kalamata olives

Method :

  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix cheese, lemon peel and oregano.
  2. Cut 4 (18×12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray foil with cooking spray. Place 1 chicken breast on center of each sheet. Top each with 3 slices tomato, one-fourth of the onion, 5 olives and one-fourth of the cheese mixture. Bring up 2 sides of foil over chicken and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion.
  3. Place foil packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes, rotating packs one-half turn after 10 minutes, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
  4. To serve, cut large X across top of each pack; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.
