Cook's Country (December 2013/January 2014)
If we were building a holiday season survival bunker, we'd fill it with a bunch of chicken breasts.
Sure, we're going to parties, and happy hours, and tree trimmings. We even went to an early Christmas dinner (beef tenderloin! horseradish sauce!) earlier this week with friends.
But when we're not on the holiday circuit, we're eating lean. So there's chicken. Lots and lots of chicken. And brocolli. And sweet potatoes. Boring, but true.
And we are the No. 1 offenders of cooking a boring chicken breast, with a little seasoning, tossed in the oven, and simply baked. It's easy, and tasty enough, but those dishes aren't going to win any awards.
Cook's Country had our number with their "Chicken Baked in Foil" feature, with three takes on chicken that gives you the lightness of chicken breasts, but with amped-up flavor.
We selected Chicken Baked in Foil with Sweet Potato and Radish and got to work.
