I made this tonight for supper. Taking a hint from some of the previous commenters, I used the whole amount of olive oil and seasonings, omitting the butter, for just two packets. I also cut up two peeled russet potatoes since we didn't have red potatoes. It was really easy and pretty good. But I think I'd prefer a different set of spices - and maybe even some Italian dressing in lieu of some of the olive oil. I think next time, I'd also like to pound the chicken to increase the surface are to maximize flavor. Overall, this was a really good introduction to "packet" recipes, and I'm already thinking of quite a few ways to go with the whole idea. Thanks!

This is a really useful recipe. Like another reviewer, I omitted the butter and just added extra olive oil to the mix. I cut the potatoes pretty small - maybe 1/2" chunks - to ensure they'd be done with the chicken. I agree with another reviewer, too, that marinating the chicken would be great, but if you don't have time, it's still quite tasty without any extra preparation.
