Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine water and rice; let stand 5 min. Spoon onto centers of 4 large sheets of heavy-duty foil;
  • Top with remaining ingredients.
  • Fold to make 4 packets; place on rimmed baking sheet. Bake 25 to 30 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening each packet.

Cooking Know-How

To prevent the 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

Substitute 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen corn, thawed, for the broccoli.

    Perhaps there should be a video. It is fairly simple, but it wasn't tasty. This is the first time I have made something from this website that didn't taste delicious. I'm going to try again, but I will SEASON EVERYTHING! The cook time for my brand new oven was not long enough. I had to cook this an entire hour before it was even ready to eat.

    This was easy to make, but I didn't think it had good flavor. Probalby won't make again.
