Original recipe yields 4 servings



  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.

My family thoroughly enjoyed this. I followed Jen's suggestion and used thighs instead of breasts. Also followed another Reviewer's suggestion and used Fajita seasoning with excellent results. Definitely needs 45 mins not 30 to thoroughly cook the potatoes. And definitely drain the salsa but don't eliminate as this provides necessary moisture to steam the chicken to complete tenderness.

My picky husband and 3yr old liked it and said it was a keeper. I didn't do the sliced potatoes because I wanted baked potatoe that night, but next time I will try it with the sliced, and I just placed the chicken in a baking pan and covered tightly with foil instead of individually wrapping each one and it came out great.



This was wonderful! The salsa I used made it real soupy so I will drain the salsa next time. I was out of taco mix and used fajita mix instead. It was so good I don't plan on ever trying the taco mix!
