Chicken Parcels - another customisable meal

2 large chicken breasts, halved (about 100g each)
mushrooms, sliced
bacon rashers (1 per parcel)

Place the mushroom and tomato on squares of alfoil and top with the chicken and bacon rashers (if using). Seal the foil parcels and cook in a pre-heated oven at 200C for twenty minutes or until cooked through. Serve with salad or vegetables.

I made this for dinner last night and it got five stars from all of us. I was serving it with pretty substantial salads so I left the vegetables simple, but this could be served with any quick-cooking vegetables you like. Vary the cooking method for different vegetables, by putting some on top to steam and others underneath to absorb juices. Suggestions:

buk choy (on top)
sun-dried tomato
yellow squash or zucchini slices
roasted capsicum
sweet potato (par-boiled or roasted)
