Original recipe yields 18 packets



  1. Cut chicken into 1-inch-square pieces. In a mixing bowl, combine cornstarch, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sugar, cilantro, ginger and garlic. Add chicken and toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Fold each piece of foil in half twice to make a 6-inch square. Place a spoonful of chicken in the center of each piece of foil, dividing it equally. Fold foil squares on the diagonal; fold edges to seal. Place on a nonstick baking sheet and bake 20 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.

Fantastic recipe! Since I was curious, the second time I cooked this, I only used two large foil pouches, rather than 9 little ones. It worked great! I made the pieces of foil the same length as the width of the foil, to make large squares. I just had two bundles, each composed of two sheets for the top and two for the bottom. Laid out the chicken in a single layer, had each of the foil packets on their own cookie sheet. Worked really well, didn't notice any difference.



I'm not sure how I found this, but needed a quick recipe for thighs. I added a tiny bit of rice vinegar and no cilantro (didn't have any)no Kikkoman, used another kind. Result? my husband said, mid bite: 'what kind of chicken is this?" me: "thighs" he: "this is the BEST I've ever eaten" . He's 62 and I'm a easy it's ridiculous and no mess, baked in foil! YEAH !! try this you'll love it.



Absolutely awesome! I didn't even use all the ingredients because I only had soy sauce and cornstarch and I used garlic powder. And it still turned out. I can't wait till I use all ingredients and also my husband said it was the best I ever made.
