Honey-Sriracha Chicken Foil Packet

A quick and easy dinner!


  • 1/2 cup uncooked instant brown rice 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 box (7 oz) Green Giant™ healthy weight frozen vegetables (sliced carrots, sugar snap peas, black beans and edamame lightly tossed with butter sauce), thawed.
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (from 20-oz package)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 11/2 tablespoon Sriracha sauce 
  • Directions

    • 1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, mix rice and water. Soak 5 minutes; drain. Stir in thawed vegetables.
    • 2. Cut 4 (10x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray center of one side of each with cooking spray. Spoon one-fourth of the rice mixture on center of each sheet. Top each with 1 chicken breast.
    • 3. In small bowl, mix honey, lime juice and Sriracha sauce. Spoon evenly over chicken.
    • 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. Place packets on ungreased cookie sheet with sides.
    • 5. Bake about 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Let stand 5 minutes.
    Okay, first off, one box of frozen veggies is no where enough for 4 servings. We used 2 boxes and could have used 3. We like veggies.
    Second, we upped the rice to 3/4 cup and the water to 3/4 cup.
    Every thing else we followed.
    Easy and tasty!
