Good things come in small packages... and this main dish is no exception!
Aug 1, 2012

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 1/4 lb/625 g)
  • 8 roma (plum) tomatoes, cut into 1/2 inch/1.25 cm slices
  • 4 small zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch/1.25 cm slices
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) basil pesto

Steps

  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Place 1 chicken breast half, 2 sliced tomatoes and 1 sliced zucchini on one side of four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Spoon 2 tablespoons pesto over chicken mixture on each sheet.
  • 2
    Fold foil over chicken and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 3
    Cover and grill packets 4 to 5 inches from medium heat 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centres of thickest pieces are cut. Place packets on plates. Cut large X across top of packet; fold back foil.
