OMG! in the beginning i was a little scepticale...but i loved it! I added a few baby carrots to each packet and only used 1/2 a package of taco seasoning & 1/2 a slice of kraft single yellow cheese for each. I added a small lettuce salad and 2 tbsp. of fat free 1000 island dressing. IT WAS O SO GOOD Submitted by:

I skipped the taco seasoning and tossed the breasts with my own spice medley (less sodium!) .... fast, easy, and oh so good! Will definitely make again. I love meals that practically make themselves!! :) Submitted by:

This was an awesome treat, and we will have it again at our table, our different take on it was, we use 6oz cauliflower per breast instead of potatoes to help cut some of the carb, and once done cooking in the foil, we put it in a small glass pryex dish, then added cheese and broiled it. YUMMY!! Submitted by:

I really enjoyed this dish. I have made it several times now. One of my favorite variations was to use a spicy seasoning salt instead of the taco seasoning. It was easier when making only 1 or 2 servings. I found I was using a bit less, so that really helped to control the sodium content. Submitted by:

I've never understood foil wrapped food, except on a campfire or on a grill. Mostly because it seems all the tasty drippings are caught in the twists of the wrapping. I'd like to try this, but I think it will be in a flat pan with a tight top. Is there lo-salt taco seasoning? Submitted by:

Sounds good. The fat content looks kind of high though.
As far as the salt, maybe low sodium taco seasoning would work better for those who thought it was too salty.

Not pleasant to look at and cheese was very messy in the foil. I think this would be better made in a skillet with cheese added on top after plating. Wouldn't need as much cheese that way and would save fat & Calories. Submitted by:

Super duper yum! Took my big fat chicken breasts 40-45 minutes to bake, but even my picky son who doesn't eat salsa or tomatoes (always picks them out) and isn't too fond of potatoes ate every single bite!!! Submitted by:

This recipe was very good and easy to make. After reading some of the comments here prior to trying it out I cooked the potatoes a little bit in the microwave first and I used Low sodium taco seasoning instead of regular and low fat sour cream.
Very Good --- will make it again!

I just made this tonight and it was awesome! I bypassed the potatoes because my hubby is watching his carb intake,i served it with low carb tortillas and cut the chicken up and made like a fajita.thank you for such a great idea...i would have never thought about using taco seasoning like that!

Very good and simple. I used a low sodium taco seasoning. It took about 15-20 minutes longer to cook, but the chicken was moist and tender. Submitted by:
