Mexican Chicken Packets


Mexican Chicken Packets are great with creamy pasta, colorful Spanish rice or just plain baked potatoes.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except chicken. Mix well.
  3. Lay out 4 pieces of aluminum foil or parchment paper about double the size of each piece of chicken.
  4. Lay chicken on half of each foil piece, skin-side down, and paint with sauce.
  5. Turn chicken, skin-side up, and paint with remaining sauce.
  6. Wrap each piece of foil or parchment around chicken and fold edges to seal tightly.
  7. Place chicken pieces on a cookie sheet and bake for 55 minutes to 75 minutes for large pieces. Chicken should be fully cooked when juices run clear and no pink remains.
  8. Place pouches on heated dinner plates and let guests open them at the table.
