  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Spoon rice onto centres of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil; top each with a chicken breast.
  • Combine cream cheese product, pesto, tomatoes and milk until blended. Add artichokes; spoon over chicken. Fold to make 4 packets; place in single layer on rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake 30 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Remove from oven; let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before carefully opening packets. Sprinkle with Parmesan before serving.

Cooking Know-How

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

Cooking Know-How

If the chicken breasts in your market are larger than 1/4 lb. (115 g) each, they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so that they are no longer pink in the centres and the juices run clear (165°F).
