Steaming “en papillote” ensures that none of the nutrients are lost during the cooking process.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound total), trimmed
- 4 teaspoons grainy mustard
- 2 leeks trimmed, cleaned and cut into 2 1/2-inch matchsticks
- 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2 1/2-inch matchsticks
- 4 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
- Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut 4 pieces of parchment paper or foil to 12 x 16 inches. Fold in half to form an 8 x 12-inch rectangle, then cut into a half-heart shape as you would a valentine.
Place a chicken breast in the center of one half of each opened paper heart. Spread mustard evenly over chicken breasts. Distribute leeks, carrots and thyme over the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Seal the packages and place them on a baking sheet.
Bake until the packages are puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. (Open one package to check that the chicken is no longer pink inside). Transfer to individual plates and let diners open their own packages.
