Hiiiiii Friends! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve last blogged huh? Sorry about the hiatus, but I am super excited to share this new recipe with you. As of late, my go to quick healthy meal has been my Baked Tilapia with Spinach and Tomatoes in Foil Packets. I can’t get over how quick, healthy and delicious it is that I needed to find another recipe. I found a recipe that I tweaked for Dijon Chicken with Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Sweet Peppers, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
- 1 lb Chicken Tenders
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- 1 small Zucchini, thinly sliced
- 4 – 5 small Sweet Peppers, cut into thin strips
- 1 Shallot, thinly sliced
- 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
- 4 teaspoons Olive Oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Thyme, dried
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lay out a sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet. You’ll need approximately 12 – 14 inches of foil for one packet.
Place 4 chicken tenders in the middle of the foil and spread with 1 Tablespoon of the dijon mustard.
Toss zucchini, peppers, shallots, tomatoes, oil, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl. And place half of the vegetable mixture on top of the chicken.
Now fold the sides inward around the chicken and pinch the ends closed.
Bake till the vegetables are tender and the chicken is no longer pink – approximately 30 minutes. Using the tenders will help with the cook time as they are all similar in size and thickness vs using a whole chicken breast.
Watch out for the steam as you open your packets!
It’s time to eat…
I really wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out… I do think that a lot though when I’m trying out new recipes. I was so very pleasantly surprised! The Dijon was not overwhelming and even provided great flavor to the vegetables as well. AND the chicken was so juicy!
You must try this one out the next time you are looking for something quick, healthy, and delicious!
