Healthy chicken and veggies loaded with Italian spices and baked in a foil packet. This simple recipe transforms chicken into a tasty effortless dinner in minutes. Plus, each serving is only 261 calories!
Dinner couldn’t get any easier with these foil packets. They’re perfect when you’re tired and just need to pop something in the oven while you get other things done around the house.
You basically mix the chicken, veggies, and spices in a large bowl. Then place them in individual foil packets and bake for 20 minutes. The result is unbelievably tender chicken and veggies that melt in your mouth.
My family loves these foil packets because everyone gets their own foil packet and opening the foil is so much fun!
