Chicken and Veggie Parcel

The culinary art of steaming foods in parchment paper, en papillote in French parlance, is the ideal cooking method when preparing meals for one. Just toss your ingredients in the packet and revel in the ultra-juicy meat and perfectly tender vegetables. For a ta-da presentation you can enjoy all to yourself, serve this at the table still wrapped in the parchment paper. Consider serving with a side of quinoa or freekeh.

Under wraps

To prepare parchment paper packets:

  • Cut your paper into a 15 x 18 in (38 x 46 cm) long piece.
  • Fold in half crosswise so that a crease runs down the middle.
  • Create a paper heart by drawing a half heart with the centre of the heart on the crease, then cut out the shape.
  • Open the heart and layer ingredients on half of the sheet, close to the centre fold. Don’t forget to leave at least a 1 in (2.5 cm) border around the edges to allow for folding.
  • Starting at the top of the heart, fold edges of parchment together, sealing edges with tight 1/4 in (0.6 cm) folds.
  • Twist end tip of packet to secure ingredients, and tuck it underneath.
