There are some recipes out there where you can only wonder what the end result will be. When a Ukrainian YouTube channel posted a video involving aluminum foil inside chicken breasts – it definitely had people intrigued!
Simple Recipe is behind the viral video that’s titled, “I put a piece of foil in the chicken – see what happened!” It’s racked up over 4.5 million views from YouTube users all across the globe.
Three chicken breast fillets are required.
In the tutorial, the person slices down the middle of one of the fillets, then carefully makes cuts inside, creating a “pocket.” As we already know, it’s where the aluminum foil will go!
Crumpled up foil is then pressed into each chicken breast.
After each fillet is filled, the demonstrator seasons them with salt and pepper.
Okay, back to the chicken.
The breasts are turned over and seasoned with the salt and pepper. Then, they’re placed in a frying pan of hot oil, where they’re fried for one minute on each side.
The fillets are taken out of the frying pan and placed in a baking dish.
Using tongs, the person carefully removes the aluminum foil. Makes you curious what they’re going to be adding to the chicken pockets!
Time for some chopping.
Next is when we get to find out some of the other ingredients in this unique dish. Fresh parsley is cut up, followed by 75 grams of feta cheese. Your mouth might be watering at this point if it wasn’t already!
Both the parsley and the feta are put into a bowl, then topped with an egg white.
The demonstrator mixes up the three ingredients and spoons the mixture into the chicken breasts. Each one is like its own container of yummy goodness.
Toothpicks are a helpful tool in this recipe.
Each chicken fillet is skewed with a toothpick so that the pocket stays open wide. The photo below will give you a good idea of how it’s done.
The baking dish is then placed into a pre-heated 200° C oven (close to 400° F).
After baking in the oven for 10 minutes, the dish is removed. Let’s just say it’s looking scrumptious! However, it’s not done yet.
The toothpicks are removed and 50 grams of hard cheese is sprinkled on top. But if that’s not enough – there’s one more ingredient that’s like a cherry on top…
A single, unbroken egg yolk is gently placed on top of each chicken breast.
I don’t know about you, but that’s not what I was expecting! The baking dish is then set back in the 200° C oven (close to 400° F) for five minutes.
