Friday Food: Foil Pack Chicken w/ Asparagus and Rustic Tomato Sauce

Cooking chicken in a foil pack is one of the easiest ways to cook it and also one of the most efficient. This recipe is no exception and adds some great asparagus options as well and adding tomato sauce and oh this is a good one.  Well work checking out and making with easy clean up to follow.

-7 spears of asparagus, ends trimmed
-1 chicken breast, skinless
-2 slices of lemon
-8 cherry tomatoes
-Kosher salt
-Black pepper
-Drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
-Splash of white wine (optional)

The Game Plan:
-Tear 2 pieces of foil that are about 12-inch by 18-inch and stack them on top of each other.
-On the center of foil, asparagus in flat layer and top with chicken breast.  Lay slice of lemon underneath chicken, and another slice on top.  Scatter tomatoes around chicken and season with pinch of salt and pepper and drizzle of olive oil.  If you have an open bottle of wine that you want to use up, add splash of that as well.  Fold up packet ensuring you have a tight seal.
-When ready to cook, place sealed packet on hot grill or over fire for 10 to 15 minutes flipping half way through until chicken is fully cooked.
-Remove packet from grill and pierce with knife or fork to allow seam to escape.  Unfold packet and enjoy.
