Number of serving: 4
4 organic chicken breasts - skin and bone on

1 medium potato per person

fresh or dry thyme

8 tablespoons white wine

a selection of pitted olives - use green, black, dried and even tapenade.

caper berries

salt/pepper to taste


  • Slice the potatoes thinly with skin on. Keep in a bowl of water to keep the potatoes from going brown.
  • Once you have cut out your paper pouch, lay the potatoes in a single layer at the bottom.
  • Season well. Lay a chicken breast on top of the potatoes and season with salt/pepper and thyme.
  • Drizzle with some olive oil and close the pouch, leaving a small opening in the one corner. Pour the wine through this opening.
  • Close the pouch properly and place on a baking try. Bake for about 30 minutes. The meat should be soft and succulent.
  • Serve with black and green olives and some tapenade.
