Individual Chicken Packets

This is also a nice elegant dish although I would probably only make it if I was having a smallish crowd.
8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (on the smaller side)
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
8 teaspoons basil
½ teaspoon pepper
2 (8 ounce) packages sliced mushrooms
4 carrots, cut into thin strips
2 zucchini, cut into thin strips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.Fold 8 pieces of foil in half to make 8 14 x 12-inch rectangles (approximately). Place 1 chicken breast on each piece of foil and fold up edges a little. Stir together the oil, lemon juice, basil and pepper and pour over each piece of chicken. Top with mushrooms, carrots and zucchini. Seal with double fold, leaving small space for steam to escape. Bake for 45 minutes. Gently slide out of foil onto individual plates and serve.
