CHICKEN FAJITA FOIL PACKETS

These Chicken Fajita Foil Packets are an easy dinner recipe that's perfect for summer! Slices of chicken, peppers and red onions cook together with an easy homemade fajita seasoning, on the grill or in the oven. Serve them with warm tortillas for a no mess meal!

Recipes like this are perfect for camping, when you're not going to want to spend a lot of time on meal prep, and those busy days where you're running from the park to the beach to the grocery store for a refill on popsicles. You can have them ready and waiting, and when 5:00 hits you can fire up the grill and serve with some warm flour tortillas or rice.

CHICKEN FAJITA FOIL PACKETS

Another thing that's great about these chicken foil packets is that you can adjust the ingredients and the level of spice to suit everyone's tastes. If a family member is not keen on onions, leave them out. If one likes their fajitas with extra spice, throw in some jalapenos or a dash of sriracha when you're mixing it up. Vegetarian? Simply leave out the chicken and add in extra veggies like zucchini or mushrooms.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN FAJITA FOIL PACKETS:
  • Double up on the foil: you really don't want any of that flavor to drip out (and cause flare ups!), so double up on the foil to prevent any leaks.
  • Slice your chicken thin: your peppers and onions won't take long to cook, and your goal is to have everything ready at the same time. Make sure your chicken slices are thin so they will cook quickly as well.
  • Time saver: if you're short on time or energy (or both!) feel free to swap out the homemade seasoning for a store bought package. No one will know 
INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 sweet bell pepper (red or orange), sliced
  • ½ large red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • Tortillas, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa for serving as desired
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat the grill to roughly 400 degrees F (medium high)
  2. Place all ingredients (chicken through paprika) in a large bowl. Stir to combine well, until everything is evenly coated.
  3. Place two pieces of tin foil one on top of the other. Spray lightly with non stick spray, and spoon ¼ of the fajita mixture in the center. Repeat 3 times with the remaining fajita mixture to make 4 packets.
  4. Fold and seal the tin foil and place over direct heat on the grill. Cook for 12-15 minutes (for even cooking, rotate once halfway through) until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  5. Serve with tortillas and toppings as desired.
