Italian Chicken & Vegetables Packets

2 sheets (12X18inches) Aluminum foil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2/3 c. Italian dressing, halved
1 tsp. dried basil, halved
2 c. frozen broccoli, cauliflower & carrots
2 TBS. grated Parmesan cheese, halved


Preheat oven to 450 F or grill to medium high.

Center one chicken breast half on each sheet of foil. Pour 1/3 C. Italian over each chicken breast; sprinkle ½ tsp basil over each. Arrange veggies on top of chicken.

Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for steam to circulate inside.

Back 20-22 minutes on a cookie sheet in oven or grill 12 to 14 minutes in covered grill. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Suggestions: serve over hot cooked pasta.

You know the drill: make as much of this recipe low-fat and you can always omit the pasta or use wheat instead.
