Chicken Packets

While doing phase one of the South Beach Diet, we discovered this fantastic way to cook chicken breasts.  Quick and easy and yields tender, moist chicken!

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 lb)
Seasoning mix of your choice
Zucchini and/or yellow squash, in 1/2 pieces
Chopped scallions
Lemon slices
Other vegetables as desired

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut four 2 ft. lengths of aluminum foil. Fold each in half to make a 1 ft. square.

Sprinkle the chicken breasts with seasoning. Place a breast in the middle of the foil square.  Add vegetables to each packet.

Fold foil over chicken and crimp edges to seal tightly.   Bake for 20 minutes on a baking sheet.

Serves: 4
