Chicken Breasts Cooked In Parchment Paper

I just cannot believe how easy it is to cook a meal in parchment paper.  The chicken breasts came out very tender and flavorful. If you have not tried this
method of cooking before you might want to give it a try.


  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 8 Strips of Organic Bacon
  • ½ Cup Chopped Green Onions
  • 6 Chopped Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Cup Salsa
  • ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 Chopped Jalapeno Pepper


Preheat your oven to 350° F.  In two large pieces of parchment paper place 4 strips each of the organic bacon.  On top of the bacon sprinkle the chopped green onions, chopped jalapeno and chopped garlic.  Place the chicken breasts on top of the bacon pile and salt and pepper the tops of the chicken.  Place ½ cup salsa on top of each chicken breast.  Close up the parchment paper up around the contents and tie the top with butcher string.  Place in a baking pan and cook for 1 ½ hours.  Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.  Open the parchment packages and transfer to either a serving platter or individual plates.  Serve with a green salad and diced pineapple.  Serves 2.

what is Parchment Paper and where would one get some?

It is paper that is typically used to line a pan for baking. It's similar to wax paper - without the wax! You should be able to find it in the supermarket aisle with aluminum foil & plastic wrap; however, I got mine at Christmas Tree Shop :)

Emily, if you want to make this a lower fat dish skip the bacon and take the skin off of the chicken breast. Try and use chicken breasts with the bone in. I think that it tastes better. Yes, I have made beef wellington before. It's not such an easy dish to make. One of those dishes bettered ordered in a restaurant I think.

James, Aimee is correct that parchement paper is typically used for baking. It is similar to wax paper, but DO NOT use waxed paper. I pick my parchment paper up in the supermarket aisle with the aluminum foil. It is always there. Just be careful not to pick up the waxed paper instead. Aimee, you got yours at the Christmas Tree Shop? How cool is that?!
