It had just gotten really cold and I wanted warm comfort food… Nanna has often talked about cooking chicken this way, so we gave it a go and it was pretty yummy.

Chicken breasts – sliced
Onion sliced
Parsnips cut into thin sticks
Purple & orange carrots cut into thin ticks
Cabbage finely sliced
1 cup of chicken stock
Red chili pepper flakes
Salt & pepper
Parchment paper


  1.   Cut the parchment paper in to heart shapes
  2.  Liberally sprinkle the chicken breasts with oregano, red chili flakes salt and pepper
  3. On the parchment paper layer onion, parsnip, carrot, cabbage and top with the chicken
  4. Starting with the top of the heart, tightly fold the parchment paper over until you are left with a funnel at the end
  5. Pour in about 1/4 cup of stock and a slosh of wine
  6. Fold over the end
  7. Place on a baking tray
  8. Bake for 25 mins at 400C
  9. Serve with garlic and rosemary smashed potatos
