I made these packets for dinner this past Thursday...our sons come over every Thursday for dinner and some family time! These packets were a real hit...very tasty! My hubby and I cookout every Friday evening and often have packet meals..this is another we could add to the list! This recipe called for baking in the oven, but I am sure it would be just fine on the grill!

Foil Pack Taco Dinner (healthy)

From: Kraft Canada (2/22/2013)

Makes 4 servings, 8 ozs (232 g) each

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Nutritional Profile: Diabetes appropriate, Low calorie, Low fat, Low cholesterol, Low sodium, Low carbohydrate, Heart healthy, Healthy weight


4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 1 lb (455 g) total weight

4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix

1/2 lb (225 g) red potatoes (about 2), peeled & thinly sliced

1 cup Kraft® Tex Mex Shredded Cheese

1/2 cup salsa

1/4 cup sour cream


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Sprinkle the chicken with the taco seasoning mix. Place 1/4 of the potatoes on the centre of each of 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil wrap. Top the potatoes with a piece of chicken, followed with 1/4 each of the cheese & salsa.

3. Fold the foil wrap around each portion to make 4 packets, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place the 4 packets on a baking sheet.

4. Bake in the preheated 400ºF oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the chicken is done (when inserting an instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken registers 170ºF).

5. Allow the chicken packets to cool for 5 minutes. Then, cut slits in the foil to release the steam before opening the packets. Top each serving with sour cream.


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

MAKE AHEAD TIP: Assemble the packets as directed. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours, then bake as directed above, increasing the baking time to 40 minutes.

NOTE: To prevent the potatoes from sticking to the foil, spray the foil with cooking spray before using. Or use non-stick foil wrap.
