Chicken Delight

Recently, I found a great blog named Fly Through My Window. I love the variety of things she talks about on her blog from decorating to kids to sewing to cooking.

Recently, she shared this yummy recipe. It is super simple summer recipe. Go check out Darby's Chicken Delight - she shares fantastic step-by-step pictures and instructions!

Here is an overview:

Make individual serving packets by placing the following ingredients on a large square aluminum foil sheet.

Chicken breast
marinara sauce
mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese

Close foil carefully allowing enough room at the top so the cheese doesn't stick to your foil! Place in baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes.
