This was an extremely easy and delicious dinner. The chicken was PERFECT. I used a chunky salsa and that worked out well. Next time I'll try something like a salsa verde. I cut the recipe in half for my husband and I, but we didn't have 4oz chicken breasts. Instead I just cut an 8oz chicken breast in half, which worked out fine. I also left off the onion (personal preference). Really quick clean-up too! Can't wait to make it again!

Excellent and very easy to prepare. I added cilantro on top with the cheese and green onions.

What an easy prep! This meal was quick and easy to prepare and delicious to eat. I served mine with a dollop of sour cream. The chicken was moist, the bean and corn mixture was flavorful.

I have made chicken packets before but not Tex Mex style. Great flavor and so easy to do. Since I don't have a grill, I baked ours in the oven. The chicken was moist and well flavored. I did add chopped onions and green peppers to the corn/black bean mixture and a tsp of taco seasoning.
