Foil Pack Cajun Chicken and VeggiesI’m always in the search for quick and simple dinners that are 30 minutes or less. Foil pack dinners are always a great option when you just want a healthy and quick dinner without the bells and whistles. It’s as easy as combining all the ingredients, folding them in foil and baking. Of course, you can always grill them too if it’s summertime or you have access to a grill.
Foil Pack Cajun Chicken and VeggiesThe result is FLAVORFUL and tender chicken and veggies thanks to the vibrant cajun seasoning. The olive oil and garlic make this flavor-packed dish even better. If you’re trying to lose weight or on a low-carb diet, I suggest you eat the chicken and veggies straight out of the foil with a fork. If you want to make this a complete dinner, I suggest serving with cooked brown rice or quinoa or a side of mashed potatoes.  Foil Pack Cajun Chicken and Veggies

  1. This turn out awsome I will be making This again hubby enjoyed it….

    1. Foil packs are such a great idea. Have a blind friend I showed this to him in Discussion. Easy for him too! Variations are easy as well for him. THANKS SO MUCH!

  2. This recipe is great except for the spices. I highly recommend looking up a Cajun spice recipe and using that. It really helps me and my husband with portion control and losing weight. I am able to prep ahead of time (except for garlic) and marinate the chicken and vegetables in the spices. I substitute broccoli for yellow summer squash since my hubby is not a broccoli fan. It does take 30 minutes to fully cook. But every oven is different.

  3. We are huge GimmeDelicious fans! We generally try a recipe the first time as written and then adapt to our liking the next time. This is the first recipe we’ve been really disappointed with. We found it to be bland and rather soggy and colorless, which was surprising. Honestly, looked NOTHING like the pictures either. Next time we’re going to try it on a sheet pan covered and turn the broiler on at the end for some a more roasted effect.

    1. You can use any boneless cut but I highly suggest breasts!

  4. Can this be frozen and then cooked later? Looking for camping ideas.

    1. I haven’t tried freezing these and I’m not sure how the veggies will hold up!

      1. How much of the mixture should I put in the foil packet to equal 145cal?

  5. Made with steak and added jalapeños, YUMMLY! Thanks for the recipe, it turned out perfect.

  6. Sounds Good. I like foil pack cooking. No dishes!

  7. My fiancé loved it… I baked for 22 mins, the vegetables were very al dente (which is the way my fiancé prefers, but I’m not crazy about), and I felt the chicken was a weird consistency…. my mom told me I should cook the chicken a little first before placing it in the foil… maybe I’ll try doing that next time, and cooking for the full 25 mins

  8. Really good & very easy.
    My 9 y/o son, who basically lives on chicken nuggets & pizza, actually ate it. Happy to find a way to serve veggies he’ll eat.

  9. Hi! I’m excited to try this! I did want to say that I think your sodium calculation in the nutrition area is off. A teaspoon of salt alone is around 2300mg of sodium, so each serving would be around 800mg, not the 82mg you have listed. The only reason I noticed this is because I have to watch my salt intake. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Family loved this recipe!!! I made a few changes because I was cooking it on the BBQ. I chose less watery vegetables because I couldn’t broil at the end. I added asparagus , broccoli and carrots cut small. I also added some chorizo sausage. I also added more spice because my family is a fan of spicy food.

    1. This was super easy to prepare and the flavor was great, however my veggies came out mushy. I took out the oven at 20 mins and the chicken wasn’t done but the veggies were already mush. The only change I made was adding cauliflower. Not sure what went wrong
