Party in a PacketPosted by in Chicken | Parchment Paper Packets
I know you’re supposed to save the best for last, but for my first recipe, I’ve got to share one that my family thinks is absolutely incredible.
I called this Party in a Packet because the flavors of this dish taste like party snacks to me. You’re going to LOVE it.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I always use organic when available)
4 tbsp French onion dip (the kind in the dairy case)
1 cup semi-crushed cheese crackers (like Cheez-Its or Goldfish – I actually used Late July organic cheese crackers which are the same thing)
Salt and pepper
Yes, that’s right. 4 ingredients.
Prepare this dish as 4 individual packets. In each packet place one chicken breast in the center. Salt and pepper it. Brush 1 tbsp of the dip over it. Cover with 1/4 cup of the crackers. Repeat for the other packets. Seal up the packets and bake at 400 for 25 minutes.
Open it up and enjoy your party! This has a rich, deep flavor that makes you feel like you’re snacking on high calorie party snacks, when actually you’re enjoying a healthy chicken dish. Ssh – don’t tell the kids!

What an interesting take on cooking chicken. Love the concept. Gotta try this one!
I wonder if this might work with those little Goldfish crackers–my kiddos love those.
Yes, definitely – any cheese cracker works.
