En Papillote

Definition: En Papillote

En Papillote
A French-cooking technique in which food is baked inside a paper package. The steam keeps the meat, poultry, fish, or vegetables super moist. Usually parchment paper is used, but foil works as well. The package is opened tableside to reveal the succulent food.

In Italian the technique is referred to as al Cartoccio.

One of my friends ordered this dish at a restaurant a few months ago, none of us having heard of it before. When it arrived we all presumed that it was filo pastry so she actually attempted to eat the paper!! :ROTFL:

I make chicken like this in foil! I like to add vegetables and garlic and olive oil...it comes out very tender.

Yes I've heard of it, also from Alton Brown like someone above mentioned. It's a cute idea, I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds lovely.
