Summer Pot Luck Contest: Steamed Chicken Breast in a Pocket

The next entry is from Pimp That Food. Pimp's entry is an easy, quick and very tasty chicken breast made in a foil pouch. I couldn't find foil pouches at the store so I made my own in seconds.

1 Chicken Breast, split
1 Lemon, juice & zest
1 Small onion, sliced into rings (we used shallots)
3 Basil leaves
Pinch of ground ginger
1 T. Sweet chilli
1 T. Soy sauce
1 T. ExV Olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in bowl and let marinate for a couple of hours.

Then make a foil pouch, add chicken and fillings and seal super well. Oven to 400F (200C) and bake for 25-30 minutes. The pouches will puff a bit.

Let rest for 5-10 minutes, open and serve.

We enjoyed ours on jasmine rice with a nice salad. Oh yeah...and the best beer I've had in 2009!

This beer reminds me of the flavor you get in Europe - not the typical "made for export" flavor, but the real deal - it was very, very good.

Hang on if you submitted a recipe to the contest - we're gonna get through these last ones soon so we can pick a winner.
