Herb Chicken in Pockets

Happy Mothers Day to all Mom's this weekend! Enjoy being pampered! Sorry I have been out of pocket the last 2 weks. My sister was taken to ICU so I had to make an emergency trip to GA. She is in need of a Lung-Liver transplant so prayers are requested!

Last night I made Herb Chicken in Pockets for dinner. These can be done in the oven or on the grill!
Kids loved them-thought they were cute. Serve on top of rice and add the juices from the pocket on top of the chicken! Add a veggie and salad. Dinner done!

Ready to eat!

Herb Chicken in Pockets

4 Chicken breasts (with or without skin...your choice)
Any or all of the following: I used those underlined
Sliced onions or onion powder, garlic powder, basil, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper, marjoram, thyme, oregano-to taste
Spinach, fresh, washed (opt)
Butter , margarine or olive oil

Tear foil large enough to seal around chicken. Place a handful of spinach leaves. Top with a chicken breast. Top with seasonings of choice. I usually sprinkle it on. Top with a pat of butter or sprinkle with a little olive oil. Seal tightly. Place on a cookie sheet. Preheat oven and Bake at 400 degrees 50-60 min.

TIP: Be creative-sprinkle on a little wine, add shredded cheese or use a couple of tablespoons of salsa, spaghetti sauce or canned soup. I did not put spinach in the kids pockets! Wanted them to eat it! Tho they love spinach in salads! Cleanup is easy!
