Recipe by Linda Gassenheimer

2 circles of aluminum foil or parchment paper about 12 inches in diameter

2 teaspoons olive oil

3/4 pound thinly sliced boneless, skinless chicken cutlets (1/4-inch thick)

2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dill

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup frozen diced onion, defrosted

1 cup frozen diced green peppers, defrosted

1 1/4 cups thinly sliced portobello mushrooms

1/4 cup dry white wine

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray one half of each paper or foil circle with olive oil spray. Divide the chicken in half and place each half on the oiled part of the circle. Sprinkle one tablespoon of fresh dill over each chicken piece along with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the onion, green pepper and mushrooms on top. Spoon 2 tablespoons wine into each parcel. Close the parcels folding the empty half over the half that contains the chicken and seal the edges. If using foil, bend the edges over and press together. If using parchment paper, fold the edges together and then fold them around the semi-circle overlapping the previous fold as you go. Place on a baking tray and bake 15 minutes. A meat thermometer should read 165 degrees. To serve: Place each parcel on an individual plate and open it at the table. Or, lift the chicken and vegetables onto each plate and pour the sauce over them.
