Chicken En Papillote

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

There is something about cooking meat or fish en papillote that feels like you are opening up your own little present on a plate. Steamed chicken that stays tender and juicy surrounded by spring vegetables. An easy to clean up, healthy meal that only involves building a little packet and baking. Anyone can handle that!

Adding a little beer give it just a hint of flavor and keeps things nice and juicy. Change it up by adding different veggies, trying this with salmon or fish, and using different seasonings.
