  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Generously season chicken pieces with basil, salt, and ground black pepper.
  • Tear 4 long pieces of foil and lay on the counter. Divide garlic, chorizo, chickpeas, and edamame evenly on the bottom third of each foil length. Place a chicken leg and thigh on top of chickpea mixture. drizzle olive oil, white wine and, finally, chicken stock, over each piece of chicken. Fold over the foil to cover chicken. Starting on one edge, begin folding edges all around each foil packet until completely sealed. Place on baking sheet, and put in preheated oven. Bake 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and place each packet on a plate. Using scissors, open each packet by cutting the middle and peeling back the foil until the chicken is exposed. Sprinkle with basil leaves, and serve while hot. Recipe originally published in the September 2015 issue of Good Housekeeping.
