Chicken with Guac and ArugulaPosted by in Chicken
I was in the mood for something Mexican, but enchiladas have that messy pan to deal with! Instead, I made this great (and easy!) recipe in parchment.
You can either use purchased guacamole or make your own easy substitute:
Lazy Man’s Guac
Smash one avocado and top with the juice of 1/4 a lime and mix. Add half of a 15 ounce jar of mild salsa and 3/4 cups of light sour cream and mix.
Chicken with Guac
For each serving, place one boneless skinless chicken breast on a piece of parchment (see Technique page of this blog for parchment and folding instructions). Season it with salt and pepper. Place 1/2 cup of the guac on top then 1/2 cup arugula. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Mexican grated cheese mix (or just use Cheddar or Jack). Fold the parchment and bake at 400 for 25 minutes. 5 minutes before the timer goes off, spray a taco tortilla with cooking spray and set it on the baking sheet or rack next to the packet. When you take the chicken out, slice the tortilla into thin slices and top the chicken with it once you open the packet.
My family loved this and no one even knows there is arugula in it which is great if you’re trying to sneak more veggies into your kids.

This sounds good and easy. And I certainly have an unlimited supply of avos.
This looks awesome, we love Mexican food at Our Little House! I cooked chicken in parchment last night and although I’ve made several recipes using your cookbook, my husband says, “Are you sure you’re supposed to cook in that stuff!?” Men.
