Foil-Pack Chicken Fajita Dinner

1 1/2 cups instant white rice, uncooked
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 Tablespoon Taco seasoning mix
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
1 each green and red peppers, cut into strips
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup Mexican Style shredded taco cheese

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Fold up all sides of each of four 18x12 inch sheets of heavy duty foil to form 1 inch rim; spray foil with cooking spray.
  3. Combine rice, water and taco seasoning; spoon onto centers of foil.
  4. Top with remaining ingredients.
  5. Bring up foil sides and double-fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside.
  6. Place in 15x10x1 inch baking pan.
  7. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  8. Let stand 5 minutes and cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packets.
This is so easy. You can make the packets in advance to save time when cooking. Double up the recipe and stick the extra in the freezer for a meal later.
