Cooking fish or chicken in parchment paper packets is a technique known as "en papillote." The protein stays moist without any added fat, and the herbs and fish lend flavor to the vegetables.
Watch the no-mess, quick-cooking technique that will have dinner on the table in 20 minutes or less.
Be sure to slice your vegetables thinly to ensure even cooking. We used peppers, mushrooms and leeks here, but you can choose your favorite vegetables. Thinly sliced peppers, asparagus, carrots, onions, zucchini and green beans are all good choices. Switch up the herbs and spices, too!
The best thing about this recipe: because everything is cooked in the parchment, cleanup is a breeze!
