Combine the scallions, carrots, zucchini, tarragon, and orange zest. Spoon ¼ of the vegetables mixture over each chicken breast. Fold the parchment or foil over the chicken and crimp the edges together tightly. Bake for 20 minutes on a baking sheet. To serve, cut an x in the top of each packet with scissors and tear to open.
