Easy Chicken in Foil

on June 13, 2012

This is another one of my Mom’s recipes.  It might be one of the first things I learned to cook!  The great thing about this dinner is you can make a dinner for each person in case you have a picky eater (eh hem…my sister)  Mom used to let us decide what went into our foil packets then she would bake them with our initials written on the foil in sharpie.  This dinner also makes an easy freezer meal to keep on hand, or to pass along to someone in need of a meal.

Ingredients you must use:

  • 2 large chicken breasts or 4 small ones
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup

Optional Ingredients:

  • Potato slices
  • Onion
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Mushrooms
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic
  • anything else you want 🙂

To Make

  1. Place 1 chicken breasts, the veggies and 1/4 the can of soup on a piece of foil.  Top with any seasonings (I use pepepr, paprika and garlic salt)
  2. Wrap foil around food to seal and place in a baking dish (some juices usually leak out)
  3. Bake at 400 for 1 hr 15 mins
  4. Serve over rice

We usually make 2 to eat that night and freeze 2 for later.  To cook the frozen dinners: Thaw in fridge then bake as normal.
