This is a great way to prepare recipe-ready cooked chicken. Also good for chicken salad. I go a little easier on the garlic powder, and set my oven at 400 degrees rather than 425. It turns out perfect every time!

The simplicity of this dish as well as its flavor makes this an easy,quick and delicious 5 star dinner for any night of the week. I added green and red bell pepper strips as I had a half of one each left in my frige,added a small onion sliced,some sliced mushrooms. This made a colorful presentation,very tasty and so Yummyyyy,,everyone loved it!! I know I will make this again and again with the many variation possibilities by just changing up the meats and vegies,the cooking in foil is a wonderful idea!!! Thank you for such a great recipe!!!
