Tex Mex Chicken Fajita Foil Packets

It’s time to embrace the simplest summer meal there is: foil packets. They have the simplicity of a one-pot meal, but all the ingredients are wrapped up in aluminum foil, which makes for extra-simple cleanup. The prep is quick too, since everything cooks inside the foil. In the case of this version, that means a heap of veggies (there are potatoes, onions, and bell peppers) and tender nuggets of boneless skinless chicken thighs, all flavored with delicious fajita spices. Though potatoes aren’t traditionally served with fajitas, here they’re a welcome addition. Bonus: They soak up all that tasty fajita goodness.

Heavy-duty aluminum foil makes the packets strong enough for easy handling on and off the grill. If you don’t have any, use a double layer of regular foil.

Warm the tortillas up on the grill and serve them alongside, or just enjoy straight from the foil packet with all the fixings.

For more foil packet ideas, try our gnocchi foil packets, Hawaiian chicken foil packs, or grilled shrimp foil packets.
