  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.

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 ...

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 rec...

I tried this recipe because I was in a hurry tonight and didn't want a bunch of cleanup. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, just edible. Boy, was I surprised when I took a bite and loved t...

I thought these were ok - the taste was good but it turned out a little watery inside the foil packet, which translated to a mess. But flavor-wise alone, very good :)

Very tasty! I omitted the salsa as my husband does not like tomatoes. I used shredded cheddar cheese. I added 1/2 cup frozen corn to the packets - layed the corn on one side of the chicken and ...

Absolutely delicious!! Made as written for the most part, I just added some bacon bits. The kids don't like salsa so I replaced their salsa with Ranch dressing and that turned out fab too!!

Good, simple and tasty. Alleviated the undercooked potato problem by using shredded hash browns instead.

VERY GOOD AND SO EASY! WILL MAKE AGAIN. I BAKED LONGER THEN 30 MINUTES. I BAKED ABOUT 45 MINUTES AND POTATOES STILL ALITTLE FIRM.
