Dinner has never been easier with these foil packs — simple wrap and bake. So easy! And the leftovers are even wonderful the next day!


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup pesto, homemade or store-bought
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 4 slices
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, chiffonade


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Cut four 12-inch-long sheets of foil. Season the chicken in the center of each foil with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Each foil packet should be folded on all four sides. Serve the chicken with pesto, tomatoes, and mozzarella on top.
  4. Fold the sides of the foil over the chicken, thoroughly enclosing it and sealing the packets shut.
  5. Place the foil packets on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through and has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  6. Immediately serve, garnished with basil if desired.


Cooking time will vary depending on the size and thickness of the chicken.
