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.
- 4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
- 1⁄2 lb red potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup salsa or 1⁄2 cup taco sauce
- 3⁄4 cup shredded mexican cheese
- 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Sprinkle chicken with seasoning mix.
- Place 1/2 cup of the potatoes on center of each of 4 large sheets of heavyduty foil.
- Make sure foil is sprayed with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Top evenly with chicken, salsa, and cheese.
- Bring foil sides up.
- Double fold top and both ends to seal packet.
- Leave room for heat circulation inside.
- Place on a 10x15 inch baking sheet.
- Bake 30-35 minutes or until chicken is 165 degrees.
- Remove packets from oven and let stand 5 minutes.

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.
