  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine rice and water; let stand 5 min.
  • Spoon rice mixture evenly onto centre of each of four large sheets of heavy-duty foil. Top each with 1 chicken breast; sprinkle with chili powder. Drizzle evenly with dressing; top with cheese and vegetables. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place foil packets in single layer in 15x10x3/4-inch baking pan.
  • Bake 25 to 30 min. or until chicken is cooked through (170°F). Place one packet on each of four dinner plates. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening.

    I thought this recipe was fantastic! I had to use Caesar instead of ranch, but the chicken was delicious and juicy, and the veggies were out of this world. A definite repeat!

    I really disliked this meal. The rice was too mushy, and the overall flavors just didn't work for me. I was cringing the entire time while eating it. The cheese, while put on top, ended up sliding to the bottom of the foil, and it took a way longer time to cook than they said. Overall, I was disappointed.
