  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Place each chicken fillet between two pieces plastic wrap; lightly pound with rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut four pieces of parchment paper, 12×20 inches.
  2. Mix parsley, orange zest, garlic, salt, and pepper in small bowl. Fold each piece of parchment in half; arrange 1 cup spinach one side of each piece.
  3. Top spinach with chicken; evenly sprinkle parsley mixture over each piece of chicken. Sprinkle with raisins and pine nuts; drizzle with orange juice. Fold parchment over chicken; pleat edges to tightly seal. Place packets on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, until packets are puffed. Chicken should be cooked through, with no pink inside. Cook to internal temp of 165°F. Transfer packets to plates; cut across the parchment and tear open.


Nutritional values may change if you choose to substitute another chicken product. If substituting frozen chicken for this recipe, thaw before cooking. If substituting fresh whole boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut the whole breast in half before preparing.


*If you have two breast fillets in a Just BARE® package, slice each one in half horizontally to make 4 cutlets, rather than pounding them out.
