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??
