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.
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 unfoiling, the salsa creates a lot of liquid.
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!
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 after 60 minutes. Kind of like waiting for the scalloped potatoes! Same thing! I'd suggest poking them and microwaving them to give them a head start, then perhaps slicing them and continuing on with the recipe. Will probably make this again. :)
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 three year old loves it!
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 onion and it turned out awesome.
