Mealtime Mama: Cooking with foil for easy clean-up

mealtime-mama-category-sponsor-banner-2017Happy Monday, mamas. One of the things we’ve noticed about our fellow moms is that some of us don’t mind cooking but HATE the clean-up process. So if you’re in that group, you’re going to love this recipe we found on the Harps website in their section for healthy recipes. This dish involves cooking inside individual packets of aluminum foil, which makes the clean-up process SO much easier because there’s no big baking dish to soak in the sink for hours after dinner.

Plus, with this crazy weather we’re having, you have the option of either cooking the aluminum foil packets in your oven or on the grill outside. Enjoy!

Spread Dijon mustard over chicken breasts. Stir basil and paprika together and sprinkle over chicken. Top with vegetables and dot each packet with half a tablespoon of butter.

Bring up sides of foil and double fold. Double fold ends to form a packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside packet. Repeat to make four packets.
