In another bowl, mix rice and water; spoon onto centers of 6 large sheets of heavy duty foil. Top with chicken & then spoon equal parts tomato/herb mixture on top. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. If freezing, place in freezer bags.
