Cooking chicken breast with vegetables in the oven:
Step 1: Prepare the chicken breast.
Rinse the chicken breast, cleanse it of skin and bones. As a result, you get whole pieces of chicken. Dry them with disposable paper towels and make on each a few (2-3) cuts across and slightly obliquely. Insert sliced mozzarella into the resulting pockets.
Step 2: Prepare the vegetables.
Rinse zucchini (or young zucchini), cut off the ends. The skin of such vegetables is still quite soft, so we won’t clean it, but immediately cut the zucchini into thick slices.
Rinse the tomatoes properly, pat dry with disposable paper towels, and remove the stalk. Cut the tomatoes into large slices. However, if you have cherry tomatoes or others of a small size, you can simply divide them into halves.
Step 3: Wrap the chicken breast with vegetables in foil.
We will pack in portions, so immediately divide all the ingredients you have so that everyone gets equally. A total of 4 servings.
Take a large piece of foil and place it on the countertop. First put zucchini with tomatoes on it, salt the vegetables, pepper and sprinkle with chopped fresh basil. Lay the chicken fillet stuffed with cheese on top. Sprinkle again with salt and ground pepper, add more basil. Pour olive oil on top and tightly wrap the foil, sealing all the seams with your fingers. You can pack it in a bag, you can use an envelope, like mine. The main thing is that the foil is intact, and all the seams are very well closed.
Hooray! One serving is ready, now go ahead, seal the next!
Step 4: Bake the chicken breast with vegetables in the oven.
All the fillet with vegetables is packed in foil, so you can put all this beauty on a baking sheet and send it to the preheated 200 degrees celsius oven. Bake chicken breast with vegetables for 30 minutesuntil the meat is completely baked. However, nothing prevents you from opening one portion and checking the readiness just in case.
Step 5: Serve the chicken breast with vegetables.
Serve the chicken baked in the oven with vegetables as the main hot dish. As a side dish fit pasta or boiled rice. Well, if you do not diet at all, then you can without a side dish.
The chicken meat cooked in the foil is juicy and soft, and the vegetables are fragrant and incredibly tasty. Basil and cheese also play an important role, adding something Italian to the dish.
Enjoy your meal!
- Instead of mozzarella, you can use another, more affordable cheese, but then it must be crushed with a grater.
- If there is no fresh basil at hand, take another fragrant greens.
- You can add other spices to your taste, which, in your opinion, are suitable here.
