Taco Chicken in Foil Packets

Have you ever tried a recipe you thought sounded too simple to be real good? That was this recipe for me. I saw it in a magazine today and happened to have the ingredients on hand. It sounded easy so I threw it together. The first hint that it was going to be delicious was the smell from the oven as it cooked. Oh, yum! The last hint was when it won rave reviews from the family. A definite make again in our house.

Taco Chicken

5 boneless chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup shredded Mozzarella
1 cup finely shredded Monterrey Jack and Cheddar cheese or Four Cheese Mexican style Cheese
Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Make 5 equal size sheets of foil. Place one chicken breast on each sheet of foil. Sprinkle each chicken breast with taco seasoning mix on both sides. Top with salsa then sprinkle liberally with cheese. Fold foil, bringing up sides to contain liquid as it cooks. Place all packets in a 15 x 10 x 1 baking pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Serve with sour cream.
