Ingredients

  • 2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 2 cups uncooked Minute™ instant white rice
  • 1 cup frozen whole kernel sweet corn, thawed
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (6 oz each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky hot salsa
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix chicken broth and instant rice; stir and let stand about 20 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed. Stir in corn, bell pepper, melted butter and oregano.
  • 3
    Divide rice mixture evenly among foil pieces (about 1 1/4 cups on each piece). Place chicken breast on rice. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken. Top each chicken breast with 1/4 cup salsa.
  • 4
    Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 5
    Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 9 to 11 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove packs from grill. Carefully fold back foil. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese; let stand about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • 6
    To make in oven: Place packs on cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F 35 to 40 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).

  • If you don’t have heavy-duty foil, use 2 pieces of regular foil.
  • To add a little more zip, in place of the shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend, use shredded pepper Jack cheese.
