This is a super ‘low-fat’ and low calorie dish cooked without any oil. Its also super easy to make. If you want you could add oil to the papillote or you can add a drizzle of sesame oil before serving. Minus the oil the dish is under 250 kcal.



  • 1 skinless chicken breast fillet
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcerstershire sauce
  • 1 spring onion (scallion), sliced
  • 4 small mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 fresh chilli (of your choice), sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • A small cube of fresh ginger cut into thin slices or matchsticks
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sesame oil to drizzle (optional)


  1. Marinade the chicken breast with the chilli, garlic, ginger, mushrooms and spring onion in the soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce for 30 mins. You could leave this overnight.
  2. Heat oven to 180C.
  3. Place the chicken breast together with the marinade ingredients on a sheet of foil lined with baking paper. Add a little salt sprinkled on top of the chicken and a few grinds of black pepper.
  4. Cover with a second slightly larger sheet of foil to form a tent. Crimp the edges of the foil together to form a tight seal.
  5. Bake for 25 mins.
  6. Open the ‘papillote’ and char the chicken and some of the chillies and onions with a blow torch. You don’t have to do this but it does improve the look of the dish and the slightly charred spring onions and chillies are delicious.
  7. Drizzle with sesame oil (optional).
  8. Serve with rice or noodles.
