{This is just a little "spin off" of my PoeFam blog that is a home for my domestic attempts...recipes, house stuff and more! It's named after my mom's mom, Miriam Elizabeth Davis...better known as "Gackey!" She was a lovely lady and oh so domestic.

Here's another goodie that I got from a freind's recipe blog! And, after a F.I.T. from the little man because he didn't want to try it, he gave it a taste and then said, "I think I'm gunna need to use my fork!" In other words, he liked it! Little stinker! We'll make this again, for sure!
The Carrol Family's Fiesta Chicken
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breats, uncooked
1 can of Fiesta Corn
1 –1 1/2 cup{s} Salsa
Shredded Cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Tear pieces of foil for each piece of chicken. Place chicken breast in the center of the foil. Evenly divide the salsa and pour on top of the chicken. Divide the can of fiesta corn and pour on top of salsa/. Fold the foil over the top and close the edges tightly! Place foil packets on cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30+ minutes and remove. (Make sure your chicken is done...bake more if needed)

Open packets and top with shredded cheese. Place back in the oven for 2 mintues with foil packets open so the cheese can melt.

Serve over white rice and top with sour cream!

here is a twist on foil chicken packets, and it is oh so good:

BBQ Chicken Packets

Take large pieces of foil...

-Put one boneless, skinless chicken breast on each.
-Place half a corn on the cob next to chicken.
-Salt & pepper chicken.
-Add melted butter to corn (I use the can't believe it is not butter spray).
-Add 1/3 to 1/2 can of drained pinto beans to each foil packet.
-Pour BBQ sauce on top of everything.
-Seal & cook on baking sheet (to catch spillage from packets) at 450 for 40 minutes.

It is super awesome... I also take it lots of times to friends who have just had babies, surgery, etc... uncooked so all they have to do is pop it in the oven!

I do something similar too with veggies and cream of chicken. You can do what ever type of veggies you like. I use potatoes, onions, squash, and bellpepper with like a half a can of cream of chicken and add salt and pepper to the packet. It's great over rice.

The BBQ packets sound yummy too :)
