  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning mix. Place 1/2 cup potatoes on centre of each of 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top with chicken, cheese and salsa.
  2. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x3/4-inch baking pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (170 degrees F). Cool 5 minutes. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening. Top with sour cream.

Footnotes

  • Make Ahead: Assemble packets as directed. Refrigerate up to 4 hours, then bake as directed, increasing baking time to 40 min.
  • Cooking Know-How: If the chicken breasts in your market are larger than 4 ounces (125 g), they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so that they are cooked through (170 degrees F).

This is a winner with my family! We just make white rice instead of using the potatoes though, and then use the juices in the foil pack as a sauce for the rice. It's delicious! Even my picky thr...

I made a few changes I think make it better. I did away with the tinfoil and potatoes. Instead I layered the bottom of a casserole dish with corn tortillas and I threw in some sliced yellow onio...
