Foil pack taco chicken

This Kraft recipe is always in the back of my mind when I am trying to come up with something new to make with chicken. For one reason or another I have never gotten around to making it. It is really pretty good. It is a simple recipe, uses very few ingredients, and dirties VERY few dishes! If you are looking for a light and simple chicken meal I would give this a shot!

As always, I halved this recipe. I did use 1/3 cup of salsa in each chicken packet though, which is slightly more then they call for.


4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
4 tsp. taco seasoning mix
1/2 lb. red potatoes, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
3/4 cup cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup sour cream (omitted)


HEAT oven to 400°F. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning mix. Place 1/2 cup potatoes on center of each of four large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top with chicken, cheese and salsa.

BRING up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165°F). Cool 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening. Top with sour cream.
