not all the way through.

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Add each chicken breast to the centre of the foil squares over a bed of washed green
beans and cherry tomato halves and top with a drizzle of olive oil. (1⁄2 cup green

through about 15-20 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with extra fresh basil
leaves. ENJOY!
