    CoffeeB's Note:

    This is quick and easy and oh so yummy for those that want a different take on the usual tacos. I use taco sauce instead of salsa only per preference.

      This was such a great recipe! We really enjoyed dinner tonight. I added salt and pepper to the chicken breasts (which were thin sliced) before the taco seasoning. Sour cream really put these over the top. A side dish of skillet corn and pinto beans with fresh red peppers accompanied this along with tortilla chips. Thanks CoffeeB!

      very good:) I cut up the chicken into smaller pieces, didn't peel the potatoes, added the taco seasoning on top of the chicken and potatoes in the foil. I also used more salsa than the recipe called for. Very simple too, not a lot of mess to clean up after! Thanks for the great recipe!

      Very good! I added some red pepper and an onion. I would also add the cheese at the end and broil it. I used a packet of ElPaso taco powder and avoided salsa.. The result was great and the smell in the house was awesome.
