Rach makes a quick, easy and healthy recipe of fish or chicken baked in parchment paper pouches—an easy method she learned from her mom.
“I use store-bought entrée-sized parchment bags, widely available and super convenient for this method of cooking,” Rach says. “Or, cut large, heart-shaped pieces of parchment from half-sheet-sized cut paper and roll edges to form empanada-shaped pouches. My family likes this dish served with a side of rice pilaf.”
Try pairing this recipe with John’s Blood Orange Collins cocktail.

Season fish or chicken with salt and pepper. Whisk up dressing (EVOO, lemon zest and juice, white wine, red pepper flakes, garlic, and oregano), turn the cod or chicken in it, and marinate for 30 to 60 minutes if you have the time. Combine feta, tomatoes, olives, onions and parsley tops with a fat drizzle of EVOO and salt and pepper. Fill bags or top parchment with a bed of these ingredients, then top with fish or chicken and sliced lemon, roll tightly to seal and roast 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes and serve in pouches.
