Prep Time



Total Time






1 1/2
cups uncooked instant brown rice
1 1/2
cups water
asparagus spears, cut into 1-inch pieces
cup red bell pepper strips (1/2x1-inch pieces)
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 1/2 lb)
Salt and pepper, if desired
can (18 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy Parmesan basil cooking sauce
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, mix rice and water. Soak 5 minutes; drain. Stir in asparagus and bell pepper.
  2. Cut 6 (12x15-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray center of one side of each with cooking spray. Spoon one-sixth of rice mixture (about 3/4 cup) on center of each sheet. Top each with 1 chicken breast. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour about 1/3 cup cooking sauce over each chicken breast. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  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 pockets on ungreased cookie sheet with sides.
  5. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F).
