And another use, my recipe for:
Parchment Chicken with Herbs, Roasted Garlic and Onion
2 Chicken Breasts
1 small coarsely chopped onion
4-8 cloves roasted garlic
Handful of chopped fresh herbs... oregano, sage, rosemary, thyme, Parsley, basil. Anything you have on hand.
1 tablespoon or so Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt and pepper, then brown on both sides quickly in oiled pan. Remove chicken.
Cut 2 large 12"x16" pieces of parchment.
Place 1/4 of the chopped onion in middle of the parchment paper, Add on top 1-2 cloves of roasted garlic, sprinkle 1/4 of the herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Place chicken on top. Add 1/4 herbs, 2 garlics, 1/4 onion and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil on chicken, salt and pepper to taste.
Wrap each chicken up by folding edges of the paper. They should look like they're in big, upright envelopes. Punch 2- 1/4 inch holes. Bake in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or so depending on size of the chicken breast. Comes out juicy and delicious.
I plate it with baked or boiled potatoes and put the roasted garlic on top so no butter is needed. The potatoes soak up the juices. And, of course, include a green vegetable of your choice.
