Foil-Pack Chicken & Mushroom Dinner

This is a great make-ahead recipe. You can make the packets up in the morning and refrigerate....pop them in the oven when you get home.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (if you are not making these ahead).
  2. Prepare 6 separate sheets of heavy-duty foil with enough room to wrap and fold with sealed edges. Spray each foil piece in the middle with Pam spray.
  3. In a microwave, heat 1 1/2 cups of water. Mix in box of stuffing until moist. Divide the stuffing evenly over the 6 foil packets.
  4. Next, layer chicken, chopped ham, mushrooms and peas on top of stuffing.
  5. Mix soup with 1/4 cup of remaining water. Pour equall amounts over each pack.
  6. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal pack, leaving room for heat to circulate inside.
  7. Place foil packs on a 15 x 10 inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. (if your chicken breasts are large or thick, you may wnat to extend the cooking time).
  8. Remove from oven. Let stand 5 minutes. Place packets directly on the dinner plate. Since they are HOT, cut slits into the foil to release the steam before opening.

Delicious! I love packet cooking and wish RZ had a packet cooking category.:) I made as posted excepted I omitted the canned soup aspect as I knew my fresh mushrooms would add a lot of water. I also did not add any salt. Next time I would double the chicken stuffing mix underneath the chicken (love stuffing) and use a bit less water. Thank you Pam-I-Am for posting. Made for Photo Swap #8.

This is so good and easy. My husband loved it. Adjusted for 2 people so I can use the stuffing mix 3 times with one box. Thank you so much!
