Foil Packet Southwestern Chicken Dinner

2c Minute Brown Rice, uncooked
1 3/4c warm water
4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 c Kraft Light Ranch Dressing
1 1/2t chili powder
1/2c Shredded Reduced fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese
4c small broccoli florets
1 medium red pepper, chopped
Preaheat oven to 400. Combine rice and water; let stand 5min while chopping veggies. (I use baby broccoli florets so I do not have to chop anything)
Spoon rice mixture evenly onto center of each of 4 large sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil. You may use regular foil however you must be very careful with it. Top each with 1 chicken breast half; sprinkle with chili powder. Drizzle evenly with dressing; top with cheese and veggies.Make packets by bringing the side of foil up and double fold both sides and top; make certain to leave room for the heat to circulate.
Bake 25 to 30mins or until chicken is cooked through. Place 1 packet on each of 4 dinner plates. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening.
I particularly enjoy this recipe because I dirty very few dishes in the perpration and your entire meal is in this one dish! LOVE THAT!! Hope you and your family enjoy it as much as mine do.
