This colourful dish shows how easy it can be to make a healthy chicken dish without sacrificing any flavour – or slaving over a hot stove.
*Substitute skinless, boneless turkey breast for the chicken.
*Cut matchstick pieces of fennel and use in place of either the carrots or courgettes.
*Use yellow courgettes rather than green ones.
*The vegetables add heart-healthy betacarotene and vitamins A and C; and the mushrooms provide glutamic acid, which is believed to boost the immune system.
*When you bake poultry with herbs and vegetables in a sealed foil or paper parcel (en papillote), it cooks in its own juices, thus creating exquisite flavours with little fat or sodium needed.
Something else. Mine needed an extra ten minutes in the oven so my oven is obviously not as hot. Came out yummy with loads of juices and went well with the rice I had. - 08 Apr 2010
Easy to cook, great taste, though my boyfreind added chilli flakes to spice it up a bit as he likes his spice. Going to do this for my in´laws next time they come over. - 08 Apr 2010
A tasty meal that was easy to make and great when varied with different vegetables and sauces. Also easy to adjust to feed different numbers of people. - 31 Jan 2009
