Foil-Pack Chicken and Rainbow Vegetables

This was really good! Very easy to make, too, great for those nights when you just have less bandwidth. I used 4 chicken breasts, as recommended, and would have had enough for closer to 8 servings than 4. 

For the vegetables 
1 red onion, diced 
2 cups broccoli florets 
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced 
2 cups baby carrots (I used chopped carrots) 
1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes 
3 Tbsp. olive oil 
salt and pepper, to taste 
10 sprigs fresh thyme 
3 cloves garlic 

For the chicken 
4 chicken breasts 
olive oil 
salt and pepper, to taste 
4 pinches paprika 
4 sprigs fresh thyme 
4 cloves garlic 

Preheat oven to 400 °F. 

Place red onion, broccoli, yellow bell pepper, baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes evenly on a baking tray. (Try not to let the vegetables overlap too much, so that they roast properly.) 

Season with olive oil, salt, and pepper (to taste). Add sprigs of thyme and garlic clove halves on top of the vegetables. 

Tear off four pieces of aluminum foil, approximately 12 in x 12 in. 

Lay down the foil and place the chicken breast in the center for each one. 

Season both sides of the chicken with olive oil, salt, pepper, and paprika (all to taste). Add sprigs of thyme and garlic clove on top of each chicken breast. 

Bring the top and bottom edge of the foil into the center and fold a couple of times. Fold in the left and right sides a couple of times to seal the foil pack. 

Place all 4 chicken foil packs on a baking tray. Bake both trays (vegetables and chicken) for 30 minutes.
