It is starting to get hot here in Arizona, this week we will have temperatures in the mid 90's. When it is hot here I hate turning on my oven so I start using my toaster oven more often. I have recently discovered Hungry Girl's foil pack recipes and they are perfect for making in the toaster oven. Another reason I like the Hungry Girl recipes is that most of them are for one or two servings. Today I am sharing a simple but super tasty foil pack using portabella mushrooms, one of my favorite foods.
Preheat your oven or toaster oven and grab your ingredients. You need some mushrooms, hot sauce, parmesan cheese, laughing cow cheese, some onion or shallot and some cooked chicken. You also need aluminum foil that is non stick or regular and some nonstick cooking spray.
Chop up your chicken.
Chop your mushroom stem and the shallot.
The recipe didn't say to do this but I scraped out the gills from the under side of the mushroom cap.
Mix together the chicken, laughing cow cheese, shallot and the mushroom stems.
Put the chicken mixture in the mushroom cap.
Top with the parmesan cheese.
Hungry Girl says to lay another piece of foil on top to make your pack, I just fold down the top.
Then I fold up the sides. Easy! Pop it in your pre-heated oven for about a half an hour. The only thing I don't like about this cooking method is you can't really smell your food cooking.
When it is done be careful of escaping steam, you can cut it with scissors to open easily and avoid steam burns.
I served this with some salad and it was delicious! The foil packs are a great idea for solo meals and there is hardly anything to clean up afterwards.
Do you cook in foil packs, if so what do you usually make?
