'Paper'-Wrapped Chicken

'Paper'-Wrapped ChickenLean chicken breast pieces are marinated for flavor and then steamed in little packets so they stay tender.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 (about 1 1/2 pounds total) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons MAGGI TASTE OF ASIA Cooking Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon peeled, finely chopped fresh ginger
2 teaspoons cooking sherry or rice wine
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
Heavy-duty foil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place chicken in medium bowl. Add soy sauce, ginger, sherry, sugar, vegetable oil, pepper and sesame oil; stir to combine. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  3. Cut sixteen 6-inch-square pieces of heavy-duty foil. Fold each square in half to form a rectangle. Make two 1/4-inch folds on each short side, leaving the long side open, forming a packet.
  4. Place scant 1/4 cup chicken mixture in each foil packet. Double fold the open edge to tightly seal. Place packets on rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Open one packet to test for doneness; chicken should no longer be pink.

Makes 16 appetizer servings.
