Want a simple dinner? Maybe just one you can toss in the oven, set the timer and go about your business for an hour and come back to deliciousness? Your prayers are answered! This is one of my favorite easiest dinners ever!
You will need:
As many boneless, skinless chicken breasts as you have people to feed (or 1/2 an extra large breast per person if they’re not super hungry!)
1/2 to 1 cup of prepared BBQ sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s!)
Your favorite cooking spray
A large piece of aluminum foil
A jellyroll pan
A meat thermometer
Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray your aluminum foil generously with the cooking spray and place your chicken breasts on said foil. Drizzle BBQ sauce over each breast and bring sides of foil up to form a packet, making sure to tuck in the sides too, crimping as you go. What you want to end up with is a pretty air-tight packet because it will allow the chicken to cook through and absorb the BBQ sauce. Place on jellyroll pan and cook for 1 hour or until chicken reaches 165° F on a meat thermometer.
Carefully open packet to avoid scalding yourself, and enjoy! See, I told you it was easy! I like to make a packet with scrubbed potatoes and/or baby carrots (and a few pats of your favorite butter or margarine) on a cooking sprayed aluminum foil packet to accompany the chicken. This way you can make up your packets, place them on your jellyroll pan, set the timer, and do something else for an hour until dinner is done. Meat, check. Veggie, check. Starch, check. All done! So easy and delicious too! Seconds, anyone?
If you do happen to have a leftover breast or two, I like to use those for sandwiches the next day. Just slice it long-ways and put it on gluten-free bread with mayonnaise and thinly sliced tomatoes. I got four sandwiches out of our one leftover chicken breast. Yum!!!!
