Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Sprinkle chicken with seasoning mix. Place 1/4 of the potatoes on centre of each of 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top with chicken, cheese and salsa.
  • Fold foil to make 4 packets, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place on baking sheet.
  • Bake 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is done (170°F). Cool 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packets. Top with sour cream.

Easy Cleanup

Because the cooking is done in the foil packets, there's little to clean up.

Make Ahead

Assemble packets as directed. Refrigerate up to 4 hours, then bake as directed, increasing the baking time to 40 min.


To prevent potatoes from sticking to the foil, spray foil with cooking spray before using. Or, use nonstick foil.

    I have made this many times and the family loves it. I leave out the potatoes and serve it with rice. The juice in the foil package is wonderful over the rice.
