  • 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).

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...

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 ...

Good basic place to start. Instead of individual foil packets, I layered it in a casserole dish. I sliced the potatoes as thinly as I could, but they were still not cooked all the way through af...

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...

Good stuff, I enjoyed this recipe. Then leftovers went into chicken quesadillas!

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...

Good for a quick fix dinner. I used canned potatoes to make it even quicker to prep and had no problems. I liked the salsa and taco seasoning on the potatoes as well. Be carefull when unfoili...
