Preheat your outdoor grill on medium, or your oven to 425 degrees F.

On a large piece of foil, place 1 boneless chicken breast along with 1/2 piece of corn, 1/2 of a tomato, 1/4 of an onion, several pieces of carrots, 2 halves of red potato, 1 tablespoon of butter, several dashes of your favorite herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Fold aluminum foil around ingredients so that no liquids can leak out.

Follow the same procedure with the remaining 3 chicken breasts for a total of 4 foil pouches. Place pouches on grill and place cover on grill. Cook chicken pouches for 20 to 25 minutes. Move only if there are hot spots on the grill. Or you may place pouches in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

Before removing all pouches from the grill or oven, test one pouch to see that the chicken has reached 185 F, or that center of chicken breast is not pink and juices are clear. Be careful when checking contents of pouch, steam may escape and burn, and remember, the foil is hot.

When chicken is fully cooked, place pouches on separate plates and serve. Open carefully; contents of pouches will be hot.

* If using split chicken breasts (bone in), increase cooking time to 1 hour.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
