I love cooking in packets, clean-up is such a breeze. In order to increase or decrease this recipe, you need 1/2 cup or 4 ounces of salsa for each chicken breast that you make. Serve with a salad for a complete meal.

I read the reviews about blandness and also the one who preseasoned the chicken breasts, so I created my own marinate for this easy recipe... 2 T Italian Dressing, 1/4 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp garlic powder, whisked together, then brushed onto chicken breasts before I poured the 1/4 C of salsa on them. I used frozen chicken breasts so I cooked the packets on 375 for 1 hour. It came out DELICIOUS and very tasty!!! Both the potatoes and chicken were very tender and flavorful! This recipe is a keeper and GREAT when prep time is at a minimum!!!!!

I pre-seasoned my chicken with chili powder, a dash of garlic salt, and pepper. Sprayed packets with Pam before sealing, and WOW! Turned out GREAT! Topped with chedder and served with rice! Great recipe to alter!!!
