Preheat the oven to 180° C.

Cut 4 squares of wax paper roughly 30cm x 30cm in dimension. Heat half of the olive oil in a large frying pan over a moderate heat until hot. Sear the chicken strips with some seasoning until golden in colour all over; roughly 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat then spoon into the centre of the pieces of wax paper.

Arrange the vegetables in and around the chicken making sure you keep a 3-4 inch border of wax paper around the ingredients. Drizzle with the rest of the olive oil then bring the borders of the wax paper up and around the ingredients.

Arrange carefully on baking sheets. Cook in the oven for 6-8 minutes until the vegetables are cooked and tender. Check the meat is cooked through with no pink showing. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes before sprinkling with the chopped herbs and serving.
