Honey Dijon Chicken Pack – 500 Calorie Dinners #7

Last Tuesday was my 27th Birthday and in celebration I did not cook, nor did I count calories!  I ate delicious food all week and although I wasn’t counting calories I also did not go hog wild either.  I indulged in chocolate caramel truffles, pound cake and wine (all but the wine were reasonable quantities).  So today I am back and I have for you my version of a foil pack, including chicken, onions and green beans, some of my staples.

Honey Dijon Chicken Pack – Makes 1 serving, 483 Calories per serving

Ingredients

  • 1 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (8 oz)
  • 1/2 Sweet Onion
  • 1 C Fresh Green Beans
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper

Directions

Place the chicken breast on two layers of regular foil, or 1 layer of heavy duty.

Combine dijon mustard, lemon juice, honey and olive oil.

Stir together in a small bowl.

Meanwhile get about a cup to a cup and a half of fresh green beans.

Cut the ends off and cut them in half then wash them.

Slice up some onion, about half an onion per pack.

Add the green beans and the onions to the chicken and fold up the sides so that the liquid cannot run out.

Pour the honey dijon liquid over the top, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Bake in the oven at 400° for 40-50 minutes.  Easy to make and even easier to clean up!
