People think I fussed when I serve these packets. Individual aluminum foil pouches hold the juices in during baking to keep the herbed chicken moist moist and tender. It saves time and makes clean up a breeze.—Edna Shaffer, Beulah, Michigan

"I've been making this since the recipe came out in 1999...I can't believe I never rated it!! You can substitute chopped onion for the pearl onions, I do it all the time, I also don't add the thyme since it's not a seasoning I'm fond of. You definitely can't go wrong making this recipe...sooo yummy and it's fantastic with rice!! =)"

"My whole family loves this recipe! It is easy to fix with purchasing pre-sliced mushrooms, and baby carrots. If I don't have pearl onions on hand, I substitute chopped sweet onion. My 8 year old daughter likes to help me fix the packets as well."
