Did You Know Supa Mama® kitchen foil is made from

You will need:

  • Supa Mama® kitchen foil (heavy duty foil for the braai)
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 200 g fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 2 large plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves, if desired

To make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°
  2. First, slice 3-4 deep diagonal slices into each of your chicken breasts. Make sure you don’t cut all the way through.
  3. Lay out 4 (roughly 30x30cm) sheets of foil and spray with cooking spray.
  4. Place a chicken breast in the center of each piece of foil.
  5. Place a half a slice of tomato and 1 mozzarella slice in each slit of the chicken breasts.
  6. Spoon about a teaspoon of pesto into each slit in chicken breasts. Sprinkle breasts with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  7. Fold up the foil edges making sure there is a tight seal but still space for heat circulation and expansion.
  8. Place foil packs onto a baking tray and set in the oven for 20 minutes or place then on the braai grid and cook for 15-20 minutes rotating as needed.
  9. Once done, remove from the oven or braai and carefully open the foil pack. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with a side of veggies or chips.

Adjust your cooking times for the braai temperature. Be sure to open the foil pack carefully as it gets very hot inside! The chicken creates a lot of juice, this is normal, just remove your chicken from the foil or drain to serve.
