- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 to 6 oz. each)
- 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 tablespoons capers (optional)
- 8 slices lemon
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
- Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
PREHEAT oven to 450°F or grill to medium-high.
TEAR off 4 12"x18" sheets of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil.
For each packet, PLACE one halved chicken breast in center of each foil sheet and arrange broccoli around it. SPREAD one teaspoon garlic over each chicken breast, then top with 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, 1/2 tablespoon of capers (optional) and top with two lemon slices. Add one tablespoon of butter on top of lemon slices.
BRING UP foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make 4 packets.
PLACE packets onto rimmed baking sheet.
BAKE 18 to 22 minutes in the oven or grill 12 to 14 minutes in covered grill.
REMOVE pan from oven or use tongs to slide hot packets from grill onto pan or plate. Open packets carefully by cutting along top folds with a sharp knife, allowing steam to escape. Then open top of foil.
GARNISH with freshly chopped parsley before serving. (Optional).
