Foil Pack Taco Chicken

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves orĀ  approx 1 lb chicken thighs

4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix

1 cup mexican style shredded cheese

1/2 cup salsa

1/4 cup sour cream (I use "light" to keep it a little healthier)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sprinkle chicken evenly with seasoning mix. Place 1 chicken breast or thigh on top of each of four large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top each with 1/4 cup of the cheese and 2 tablespoons of the salsa.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.


Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (170 degrees F). 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. Serve with spanish rice, beans, or a vegetable. Variation: Add some diced chilies to the chicken packets before cooking to add a little kick
