Here is the recipe:
2 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
12 thin slices of red onion, halved
½ red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
1 cup peas (fresh or frozen)
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon curry powder
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut four 12-inch squares of nonstick aluminum foil. Have a baking sheet at hand.
Cut the chicken into long strips and then cut the strips crosswise in half. Put the chicken and all the other ingredients in a bowl, seasoning them with salt and pepper, and stir until the curry powder has evenly colored the chicken and vegetables. Spoon an equal amount of the mix onto the center of each piece of foil. Draw up the edges of the foil and seal the packets well, but don’t crimp the foil very close to the chicken – you want to leave room around the ingredients so they can steam. Put the packets on the baking sheet (you can assemble the packets up to 4 hours ahead and refrigerate, bake for a few more minutes.)
Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through – carefully open a packet and cut into a piece of chicken to test.
Serve immediately, bringing them to the table straight from the oven or opening them in the kitchen and arranging the chicken and vegetables on individual plates.
