Packet cooking puts to rest two mealtime dilemmas at once: portioning and cleanup. Our Garden Chicken Bake recipe is so easy and flavor-packed, you'll reach for this one again and again!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (0.7-ounce) envelope dry Italian dressing mix, with 1 tablespoon reserved
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1 to 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/2 onion, cut in half moon slices
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Tear 4 pieces of aluminum foil, each about 12  x 18 inches.
     
  2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with dressing mix, then lay each piece of chicken on a piece of aluminum foil.
     
  3. In a large bowl, combine bell pepper, zucchini, onion, the reserved 1 tablespoon Italian dressing mix, and oil; toss until vegetables are completely coated. Distribute vegetable mixture evenly over chicken breasts and drizzle any remaining dressing over vegetables.Sprinkle cheese over vegetables and seal packets tightly. Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet.
     
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until no pink remains in chicken and juices run clear.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love this recipe as is. I have made it several times and my husband and I look forward to having it again. One pack of the dry Italian dressing mix is not enough though. I use 2 of them.

Will try this!

can you cook this in a crock pot instead of individual packets

Hi there! - Yes, you can cook this chicken in your slow cooker instead of foil packets. Just don't top with cheese until 10 minutes before cooking is over. Cooking time is about 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours on low heat. Enjoy!

this sounds real good!

This is one of his Best Recipes!

The foil sheets ARE the packets!

The Garden Chicken Bake, do you use the foil sheets if you use the foil packets? Do you dilute the soup? Thanks for your help, this recipe sounds good.

what soup??
