I love spending so much time outdoors this summer, but it also means I need more meal ideas that I can eat in the wilderness! Foil packets, like packets, are a great appetizer that you can cook in your own oven or backyard fire pit!

This was amazing! Everything including the chicken was so tender my 3 year old loved it!

I love my pre-meal to come at dinner time… I am always grateful to my “previous self” for doing all the work in advance so I can enjoy the evening! And the cleanup for this one is pretty minimal, so I’m really glad things got so easy.

Is it safe to cook with aluminum foil?

I get this question every time I post a foil pack recipe. If you are worried about it, we recommend putting cooking paper between the ingredients and the aluminum foil before cooking.If you want to know more about why we think it’s okay to cook in foil sometimes, you may find this scientific paper Helpful.

Can you cook foil packets in the oven?

Yes! You don’t need a campfire or grill to enjoy these or other variations of chicken fajita foil packets. Briefly cook these in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.

our outdoor camping adventures

I recently enjoyed these chicken fajita foil packets on a paddle camping trip with my girls and their friends. It was an adventure!

For two days and one night, we packed everything we needed and headed to one of our favorite places in North Carolina, a boat-only campground. All 4 kids slept in wooden hammocks (with butterfly nets around) and really enjoyed the trip!

I was a little apprehensive about feeding four hungry teenagers, but I brought some extra snacks and stuffing, so it worked out.

And here’s how I made the dinner packets that everyone ate. I’m definitely going to make these again…super easy, filling, and good!
