The Carrol Family’s Fiesta Chicken

Amy sent me this recipe the other day. She found it at Wearing Gackey’s Apron. I decided to make it for dinner the other night. Sadly, I forgot to buy sour cream at the grocery store but the meal was still quite yummy. Next time I would make sure I had sour cream and also closed the foil packets better. Big Monkey voted that it was a good meal. The chicken was quite moist and the taste was very good. We even discussed the possibility of making this meal while camping and cooking it in the fire.

The Carrol Family’s Fiesta Chicken– (She found the recipe here on her friend’s blog.)

2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, uncooked
1 can of Fiesta Corn
1 –1 1/2 cup{s} Salsa
Shredded Cheese

Preheat oven to 400.

Get a piece of foil large enough for each chicken breast, plus veggies and large enough to wrap around and close tightly.
Put one chicken breast in the center of each piece of foil.
Divide the salsa between all chicken breasts and pour on top of each breast.
Divide the can of fiesta corn and pour on top of salsa.
Fold the foil around the chicken and veggies and close TIGHTLY! (I did not close tightly enough and had a mess!)
Place foil packets on cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 3o minutes. Use a meat thermometer to verify your chicken is fully cooked. If not it isn’t, cook a bit longer.

Open each foil packet and top with shredded cheese.
Put packets back in the oven for 2 minutes without closing the packets so the cheese will melt.

Serve over white rice and top with sour cream!

We will be making this again for sure. I wish I had a picture, but check out the above linked blogs for photos. I think their pictures are better than anything I would have had for you anyhow! Enjoy!
