Chicken Parcels – Main Meal and Side Ready Quickly

I like cooking with chicken. The meat is tender, doesn’t need a lot of time to be cooked and you can prepare endless number of recipes with it.

This week I made chicken parcels dinner with goose-fat roasted potatoes, a recipe that needs so little preparation and is ready so quickly. I hope you like it too.

Try this recipe and don’t forget that you can add different vegetables for your side dish, so make it the way you like it.

I have problems uploading pictures here, so when I figure out how to fix this problem I will show you this meal I cooked for my family.
