  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sprinkle chicken evenly with seasoning mix. Place 1/2 cup of the potatoes on center of each of four large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top each with 1 chicken breast, 1/4 cup of the cheese and 2 tablespoons of the salsa.
  2. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in single layer in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (170 degrees F) and potatoes are tender. Remove packets from oven. Let stand 5 minutes. Place one packet on each of four dinner plates. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of the sour cream.

This has become a family favorite! I did use a whole pack of taco seasoning and put into a bag with the chicken so the entire breast was coated. I have also made in a foil lined 9X13 and also covered with foil to make 1 big foil packet. Take cover off 5-10 minutes before done and sprinkle with some more shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips. Awesome!!


OK, so I had chicken thighs and homemade taco seasoning. But I am on a diet, so I substituted thinly sliced onions for the potatoes. I also only had sliced jalapeno peppers which I diced up and put on top of the chicken. Then I had white American cheese which I sliced up into thin sticks. I had tomatoes so I diced them up, and put them on top of everything, sprinkled a little more taco seasoning on top, sealed the whole mess up and baked it. OMG - what a great meal. Sour cream didn't fit into the diet, but when I am skinny, stand by as I am going to have it on top. So, good. I think made according to directions, using onions instead of potatoes, the whole family would love it.


I am going to give this a 5! Wonderful, but I did not use the potatoes. My husband asked if he needed a knife, no way- fell apart. Gives me other ideas. I have a hard time keeping with a recipe, I had no other ideas to do. I served this with the Mexican Sour Cream Rice- also, on this site. See my coments there.
