Chicken En Papillote

Chicken En Papillote

Trivia: En papillote (French word for ‘in parchment’), al cartoccio in Italian, means cooking food placed in a folded pouch or parcel, then baking the food. Don’t be intimidated by the French-ness of everything, because Chef John will show you the quickest and breeziest way to cook this dish. Profiter de ce délicieux plat (that’s ‘Enjoy this delicious dish.’ in French, by the way)!
