Chicken with Mustard & Leeks

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chicken_with_mustard_leeks.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 1993

A savory mustard coating keeps the chicken moist; threads of carrot and leek add color. Make it a meal: Garlic-Rosemary Mushrooms and roasted red potatoes.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare 4 pieces of parchment paper or foil for papillotes (see Tip).
  2. Open the papillotes and place a chicken breast in the center on one half of each opened paper heart. Spread mustard evenly over chicken breasts. Distribute leeks, carrots and thyme over the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Seal the packages and place them on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake until the packages are puffed, 10 to 12 minutes. (You may want to open one package to check that the chicken is no longer pink inside.) Transfer the packages to individual plates; let each diner open his or her own package.
