No one would guess that these moist chicken breasts and tender potatoes are seasoned with herb- and garlic-flavored soup mix. The meal-in-one is simple to assemble, and it all bakes in one dish so there's little cleanup. -Leslie Adams Springfield, Missouri

"I used 1 pkg. soup mix and used a cooking bag. Also added handful of baby carrots. Cook time about 20-25 min. or so. Just tested veggies thru vent in bag with a knife; did same with thermometer for chicken. Turned out fine. Since ovens vary cook time may take longer. (I have a convection oven, so time is shorter in general.)"

"This was just OK. As kramerstacey15 stated, it made the house smell wonderful, but in the end it was just too salty for us. Fast, but I would rather use real garlic and herbs and avoid all the sodium and MSG."

"This was pretty disgusting. It smelled delicious while baking. A big letdown. And even though I cubed the potatoes some didn't cook all the way thru."

"Outstanding! One of my all time favorites & a regular. Super easy, didn't have a hard time finding the soup mix (comes in a box with 2 packages). I only use 1 package, to cut down on sodium. Great with green beans!"
