Foil Pack Chicken

This is one of my go to meals. I like it for several reasons. One it is delicious and healthy. The clean up is minimal and pretty much a full meal in one packet!

6 ww points
4 servings, one packet each

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
4 tsp. Taco Seasoning Mix
1/2 lb. red potatoes, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup Salsa
3/4 cup 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Four Cheese Mexican Style Cheese

Preheat oven to 400°F. Sprinkle chicken 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 chicken, salsa and cheese.

Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.

Bake 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165°F). Remove packets from oven. Let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening. Serve with sour cream (optional-extra points)

Cooking Know-How: If the chicken breast halves in your market are larger than 4 oz., they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so that they are cooked through (170°F).Cooking Know-How: To prevent potatoes from sticking to foil, spray foil with cooking spray or use nonstick foil.
