Learn How to Cook a Delicious Foil Baked Chicken Caprese enjoy with Family and Friends

I think it came out great.  It was another quick meal without fuss.  I could have cooked the chicken on the skillet a bit to give it a nice golden color but that would have been an extra step.  I did add some pasta and sauce because I wanted to make it more of a meal but it is totally optional.  My kids loved the pasta.  As soon as I set the food down, noodles and sauce started flying.

FOIL BAKED CHICKEN CAPRESE

Ingredients:

– 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

– 8 oz sliced fresh mozzarella cheese

– 1 cup diced tomatoes

– 1/2 tbs Italian seasoning

– salt and pepper, to taste

– 1 onion, sliced

– 1 bell pepper, sliced

– 1 tbs balsamic vinegar

– 1 tbs butter

– 1 tbs olive oil

– 1/4 cup of fresh basil

– angel hair pasta and sauce, optional

Directions:

1. Pre-Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a bowl, combine the butter, olive oil, Italian seasonings and salt and pepper.  When thoroughly combined, add the chicken, onions, tomatoes and peppers. Mix until everything is coated with the butter/olive oil/seasoning mixture.

3.  Lay out (4) 16-inch long pieces of foil and divide the ingredients evenly in the center of the foil.  Wrap the foil tightly so there are no holes.  If you have to, add another piece of foil on top to ensure the moisture remains in the packet.

4.  Place the foil packets on a foil lined baking sheet for 15-20 minutes or until everything is cooked through.

5.  Open the packets and add the cheese.  Add the packet back to the stove for an additional minute to melt the cheese.

6.  When the cheese is melted garnish with basil and vinegar.

7.  You can complete the meal with pasta and sauce as an option

15 Things I Hate about Eating

Things I hate about eating and eating habits:

  1. I hate that I have to count my calories mostly all the time so I don´t gain weight
  2. I would love to eat  beef medallions or a big chunk of steak everyday without knowing that if I did I would clog my arteries with triglycerides and…..oh no!
  3. Cooking everyday? Yup, gets awfully tiring doesn’t it, especially when I have hundreds of other things to do during the day.
  4. I over eat one day then I feel guilty
  5. Spilling food on my new blouse or dress.
  6. When I cannot control myself and have double servings, my belly feels pretty bad. Yes, I hate this feeling and then the guilt…sucks!
  7. I hate when people eat with an open mouth and make noises…it is gross!
  8. I can’t stand to eat with people who  don’t have manners at the table.
  9. I don’t like it when people want to impose their eating preferences on me: are you a vegan? I am not. Vegans  have this annoying way of preaching their beliefs upon others, it’s my choice and you can’t expect everyone to go vegan.
  10. Gluten in my food.
  11. GMO food…ugh!
  12. Having to unbutton my button after eating.
  13. Heartburn anyone?
  14. The food delivery people take too long…I lost my appetite by then.
  15. Oh, I hate eating alone.
