  • Herbs of choice a generous pinch of: thyme, oregano, tarragon, rosemary, etc...
  • Ground Black Pepper

  • Place layers of parchment paper in a pan, or on a clean dry counter
  • Pour a TBSP of olive oil on the top layer of parchment.
  • Place the chicken, breast meat on the bottom.
  • Rub about 1 TBSP of olive oil plus the garlic and herbs all over the chicken.
  • With a stapler hold together each layer of parchment so chicken is completely wrapped by each layer. - The idea is to seal all the juices.
  • Wrap completely in aluminum foil (even 2 layers if you like)
  • Place the chicken in the hot oven.
  • Bake for 45 minutes in the 350 degree oven. Additional fifteen minutes reduce the heat to 300 degrees.
  • Place a thermometer deep into the center of the chicken to an internal temperature of of 180 degrees to check for doneness.
  • Bring to the table sealed. Cut through the layers of paper and let the steam escape. This is the most moist and easy chicken recipe there is!
  • Spoon the accumulated juices on a grain side dish of your choice
