Foil Packet Southwestern Chicken

This was an easy weeknight dinner and very tasty!


  • 2 cups Minute Brown Rice, uncooked
  • 1 3/4 cups warm water
  • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup Kraft Light Done Right Ranch Reduced fat dressing (I used the light 3 cheese)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 cup Kraft 2% Milk shredded reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese (I used cheddar last time and mozzarella this time)
  • 4 cups small broccoli florets (I maybe used 2)
  • 1 medium red pepper, chopped (I also added a chopped green pepper)
  1. Preheat oven to 400*
  2. Combine rice and water; let stand 5 minutes while chopping veggies
  3. Spoon rice mixture evenly onto center of each of 4 large sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil
  4. Top each with 1 chicken breast; sprinkle with chili powder
  5. Drizzle evenly with dressing
  6. Top with cheese and veggies
  7. Make packets and place on baking sheet
  8. Bake 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (170*)

I served these with Cheesy Garlic biscuits posted by Mrs.Bowen on The Nest

  • 2 cups Bisquick mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/4 cup butter - melted

Combine first 3 ingredients until moist.Drop onto greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 450 for 8 minutes.

Mean while, mix melted butter and garlic.Pour over hot biscuits and serve.Makes 8-10 biscuits.
