Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Spoon rice onto centers of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil. Top each with a chicken breast.
  • Combine cream cheese spread, pesto, tomatoes and milk until blended. Add artichokes; spoon over chicken. Fold to make packet. Place in rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake 30 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening each packet. Sprinkle with Parmesan before serving.

Special Equipment Needed

Cooking Know-How

To prevent rice from sticking to the foil, spray foil with cooking spray before using. Or, use nonstick foil.

Cooking Know-How

If the chicken breasts in your market are larger than 1/4 lb. each, they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so that they are no longer pink in the centers and the juices run clear (165°F).


Substitute instant white rice for the cooked rice by simply combining 1-3/4 cups warm water and 2 cups instant rice; let stand 5 min. before placing on foil.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasty Looking for a new foil-pack dinner to try, stumbled upon this one. Husband enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty good. Kids did not care for. I may try again, with less or skip the cream cheese, add a little more green in (i.e. baby spinach). I also used a multi-grain rice (long grain, wild & quinoa).
