{Foil-Baked Asian Style Chicken}

This is a meal my husband makes actually! He also likes to cook dinner or help me do it, and I love that we have that in common. This is a recipe that he found and has made a few times because we all love it. The flavors are very tasty, and there is just enough sauce to serve it over rice and be a perfect meal. 🙂

6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/4 cup Soy Sauce

1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

2 Tbs minced ginger

2 cloves garlic, chopped

6 (12-inch square) pieces aluminum foil

1 cup cooked brown rice

2 scallions, chopped

Cut chicken into 1-inch-square pieces. In a mixing bowl, combine cornstarch, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sugar, cilantro, ginger and garlic. Add chicken and toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Fold each piece of foil in half twice to make a 6-inch square. Place a spoonful of chicken in the center of each piece of foil, dividing it equally. Fold foil squares on the diagonal; fold edges to seal. Place on a nonstick baking sheet and bake 25 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Garnish with chopped scallions
