Number of Servings: 6


    1 1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
    1 1/4 cups warm water
    6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approx 4 oz each)
    2 tbsp ranch dressing
    6 tbsp sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    24 medium baby carrots, quartered
    6 tbsp chopped scallions
    6 tbsp chicken broth


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine rice and water, let stand 5 minutes. Meanwhile, chop veggies.

Spoon rice mixture evenly onto center of each of 6 large sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Top each with a chicken breast, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle or spread 1/3 of a tbsp of dressing on each. Top each with 1 tbsp cheese, 4 carrots (16 pieces), and 1 tbsp chicken broth. Make packets out of foil. Place on a baking sheet and bake 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening. Top with 1 tbsp scallions (each) and serve.

This recipe also works very well on the grill. I usually grill it at a lower heat and so it takes a bit longer to cook.
