What's the difference between this recipe and "No Toil Chicken in Foil"?

Hi there! The difference between the recipes are that one of them uses a dry packet of Italian dressing and a bottled Italian dressing. One recipe only uses dry packet and vegetable oil to make a mixture to coat vegetables. This is because if you dont have the bottled dressing in your pantry you can still make the recipe by using just vegetable oil and some of the Italian dry packet. Hope this helps!

will cook tomorrow

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??
