Tin Foil Dinners

These are so easy and very yummy! Especially if you use my Ranch Dressing Recipe.

Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 40 min

Makes: Makes 4 servings, one packet each.
2 cups instant brown or white rice, uncooked
1-3/4 cups warm water
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves pre-cooked! (I cook mine with seasons for some added flavor)
1/4 cup Light Ranch Reduced Fat Dressing (or homemade Ranch is delicious too!)
1/2 cup Shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 Bag Microwaveable mixed vegetables.

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Put bag of vegetables in microwave to cook.Combine rice and water; let stand 5 min.
Spoon evenly onto centers of four large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top each with 1 chicken breast half.
Drizzle with dressing; top with cheese and vegetables.
BRING up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside.
Place in single layer in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
BAKE 20 minutes. Place one packet on each of four dinner plates.
Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening.
Cooking Know-How
To prevent rice from sticking to the foil, spray foil with cooking spray before using. Or, use nonstick foil
