adapted from:  http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/foil-pack-taco-chicken-75567.aspx
Ingredients:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
6 tsp. taco seasoning mix (I made Jackie's recipe previously posted)
3 medium sized potatoes, thinly sliced
2 zucchini, thinly sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1-1/2 c. salsa
1-1/2 c. Mexican blend shredded cheese
sour cream (not included with our swap)
Assembly:
On counter, lay out six 12 inch squares of heavy duty aluminum foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray.  In center of each foil square, place potatoes (each packet will have 1/2 of a potato).  Next, layer zucchini (about 1/3 of a zucchini per packet) and then red onion.  Sprinkle 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning over veggies on each square.  Top each with raw chicken breast.  Sprinkle the top of each breast with another 1/2 tsp. taco seasoning (each packet will have total of 1 tsp. taco seasoning).  Top each square with 1/4 c. salsa and 1/4 c. cheese.  Fold each foil square to make a packet. Place packets in freezer bag; freeze.
Serving Day:
Place frozen foil packets on rimmed baking sheet.  Bake at 400 for 1 hour and 20 min.  Once done, carefully puncture a hole in the side of each packet to drain all the juice.  Carefully open and slide onto plate. Serve with sour cream, if desired.
