Santa Fe Chicken Packets + Baked Potatoes

I prepared 8 individual packets for my family before we left and we cooked it in the slow cooker!  It turned out great.  A tasty meal that we didn’t really have to work for.

  • 15 oz can of chili beans (some like black beans instead)
  • 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 7 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • cooking spray
  • aluminum foil



  • Mix together chili beans, diced tomatoes & green chilies, corn, cumin, onion chili powder, paprika and salt in a bowl.
  • Lay out a piece of foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Place chicken in the middle of the foil.
  • Spoon bean/tomato mixture on top of the piece of chicken.
  • Wrap the foil around it.
  • Place it in the slow cooker and cook for 8 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high.
  • Individually foil wrap each potato.
  • Place these in the slow cooker on high for all day.  You may want to rotate around though, as these do not cook evenly in the slow cooker.  The bottom ones will be more done and the upper ones won’t.


One mistake I made was I poked all of the potatoes befor I put them in the foil, just because I have a habit of doing that.  If you plan on not cooking yours right away (like me), you won’t want to poke them, otherwise you’ll have brown spots on the inside and you may think it’s looking rotten.  Once I realized my mistake, I was able to eat them!  🙂
