  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, mix rice and water; soak 5 minutes. Drain.
  • 2
    Season both sides of each chicken breast with cumin, black pepper and coriander.
  • 3
    Cut 4 (12x10-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray center of one side of each with cooking spray. Spoon one-fourth of rice mixture onto center of each sheet. Top each with 1 chicken breast. Top chicken with one-fourth of green and red bell pepper slices. Top each with 1/4 cup of the salsa.
  • 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 before serving.
