It's time for another update in Selie's "Painfully Obvious Cooking Ideas."

This is for those of you with access to an oven but limited dishes. I'm pretty sure this happens, that some dorms have a floor oven or something in a floor kitchen, or something. Anyway. It's very simple. You need tinfoil and you need some chicken breast (I like going to Costco and getting one of those huge freezer bags of them, cheaper that way, but I have a freezer to store things in) and you need some spices. Season your chicken and wrap it in tinfoil. Put it in the oven. Mostly-thawed chicken requires about 30-40 minutes to cook. It's probably upwards of an hour if it's frozen, but I haven't tried that. Anyway, it's nice and simple and afterwards you don't have any dishes to clean up - just throw the tinfoil away. You don't even need to marinate because the way the tinfoil traps things in makes it so the chicken gets pretty well-flavored.

Spice suggestions ... seasoned salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, tarragon (just tried it, it's good), dill, soy sauce, brown sugar ... it goes on.

You can also stick some chopped up potato and onion in with the chicken if you want. Mmmm. Meal in foil. It's pretty fast preparation too.
