Chicken in tomato garlic sauce
Cooking chicken in packages will guarantee you have moist chicken every time. Note that you'll be using the leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.


  • 1 rimmed baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • 1 medium bowl
  • 1 Medium pot


  • 3 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ cup black olives (pitted)
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (1 ½ to 2 pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Cut parchment paper into 4 rectangles, 12 x 18-inches each; fold each in half crosswise to crease, then reopen.
  • Put the tomatoes and olives in a medium bowl. Spoon the tomato mixture onto one-half of the rectangle as close to the center as you can. Top each with 2 chicken thighs. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, a top with a sprig of thyme.
  • Tightly roll each side of the open edges, pressing down to form a tight seal so the moisture can't escape.
  • Put the packages on a rimmed baking sheet and put in the oven. Bake until the chicken is cooked through and the tomatoes are tender and saucy, 25 to 30 minutes (open up 1 package to check).
  • While the chicken is cooking, combine the quinoa and water in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork and season to taste.
  • When the packages are ready, carefully open each. Serve hot or warm right in the packages or on plates with the juices poured over. Serve with the quinoa.
