4 servings (serving size: about 5 ounces chicken, 3/4 cup vegetable mixture, and 1 tablespoon cheese)

If carrots are not allowed on your low-carb plan, add another bell pepper, thinly sliced, in place of the sliced carrot.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Tear off 4 (12-inch) lengths of heavy-duty foil; fold each piece of foil in half, shiny sides together. Place on a baking sheet, and open out flat, shiny side up. Coat with cooking spray.

Step 3

Arrange one-fourth of chicken strips on half of each foil square near the crease. Spoon vegetables evenly over chicken; sprinkle with basil and black pepper. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil over vegetables in each packet. Fold foil over chicken and vegetables, bringing edges together; fold edges over to seal securely. Pleat and crimp edges to make an airtight seal. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Remove chicken mixture from packets, and transfer to individual serving plates. Or, if desired, place packets on individual serving plates; cut an opening in the top of each packet, and fold aluminum foil back. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.
