Chicken in Paper

Makes: 4  servings Prep 25 mins Bake 400°F 15 mins Start to Finish 45 mins
Chicken in Paper


  • 4 (1-3/4 lbs total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup  finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon  red-pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup  golden raisins
  • 3 tablespoons  pine nuts, toasted


1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place each chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound to an even 1/2-inch thickness. Prepare four 20-by-30-inch pieces of parchment (see instructions, above right); place chicken on one side of each paper.

2. In a bowl combine parsley, garlic, zest, salt and red-pepper flakes. Divide mixture among chicken breasts, covering the surface of each piece. Sprinkle with raisins and nuts.

3. Fold parchment over chicken breasts and pleat in 1-inch increments, folding edges over tightly to seal packet. Place packets on a baking sheet; bake until packets are puffed and chicken is cooked through, 15 min.

4. Carefully transfer packets to plates, cut the paper across the top and tear to open.
