    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!

    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 - 1/19/10

    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!! :) - 10/29/09
