Broiled Chicken with Red Potato and Carrot

These day I will make healthy food for hubby.He is on straight diet.I was surprised when I see him at the airport from far away.He came to pick us up when we was back from near 3 months Malaysia trip.At first I thought I saw someone else but when I walked to him ,I dropped my glasses!! He look like he lost a lot of weight..That right!! He told me he lost more than 50 pounds by eating the right portion and right kind of food.Yesterday,I broiled some boneless chicken breast with some baby carrot,onion and red potato with garlic powder and Montreal chicken seasoning..You can find Montreal chicken rub at BJ's wholesale or any supermarket.The idea to broiled chicken in aluminum foil is not only easy and simple but also to save your precious time from cleaning.You don't have to soak and scrap the baking dishes.This dish is not only healthy but delicious too!!







Ingredients:

1 pieces heavy aluminum foil 16x16
2 boneless chicken breast,sliced each piece into half
10 red potatoes,washed and cut halves or quarter
2 big onion,peeled and cut into 4 or 6 each
1 cup baby carrot
3-4 tbsp low fat butter(I used smart butter)
3-4 tbsp Montreal seasoning
1 tbsp ground black pepper





Method:

1:Season chicken with Montreal chicken rub for 30 minutes or longer.Preheat oven to 375 F.
2:Prepare a heavy aluminum foil,place seasoned chicken in the center,follow by cut red potatoes,baby carrot and onion.Sprinkle some ground black pepper and butter on the potatoes ,onion and baby carrot.Wrap or foil all the corner up.
3:Place wrapped foil onto a baking dish underlined with some water.Place the baking dish on the oven and broil for 45 minutes.
4:Remove chicken from oven and serve warm as main dish.
