Chicken Breasts and Mushrooms in Foil

I like cooking chicken breasts in foil. It’s a great way to portion, easy to clean up, and the chicken turns out juicy every time. Plus I can make the side while the chicken cooks in the oven. Nice and easy, especially for a weeknight meal. That made this recipe one I had to try.

Chicken breasts with mushrooms baked in oven. Very easy and tasty.

The Ingredients

The ingredients for this dish were easy to find and not too expensive. Oddly, my local grocery store likes to sell chicken breasts in 3-packs, not 4 as specified. I doubt that made any difference in the final product. Oh, and be sure to pick up some bread so you can use the extra sliced ham for sandwiches.

Chicken Breasts and Mushrooms in Foil ingredients
Chicken breasts, ham, lemon, green onion, mushrooms, garlic, red wine, marjoram and thyme

The Process

The entire process took 65 minutes from prep to finish. This included 8 minutes for prep work and cooking the chicken breasts for 20 minutes. However, my chicken wasn’t nearly done enough after 20 minutes, and I had to put it back for another 20 minutes to fully cook.

I did notice some errors in the recipe. First, thyme is listed twice in the ingredients. This should have been thyme and marjoram. Second, the broth that is listed as an ingredient isn’t mentioned in the instructions. I opted to add it with the wine in step 2. Finally, preheating the oven isn’t listed until the final step. I would have preferred to see it at the beginning so it isn’t accidentally missed.

My chicken was very underdone even though I cooked it for the longest time specified. I also found a few errors in the ingredients and instructions. The final dish wasn't terrible, but it didn't wow me. The mushrooms were earthy and flavorful, but the chicken itself was very bland. I thought the addition of the ham was a nice replacement for salt, and it did add a little flavor. I doubt I would make this recipe again.
