Make chicken fajitas in 12 minutes with foil packet recipe

The most time-consuming and frustrating part about making dinner can often be the clean-up. That’s why we love foil packet dinner recipes. Any recipe that removes the need for scrubbing pots and pans post-feast is always a gold star choice in our book.

And this recipe for grilled chicken fajitas from Well Plated is more than just a cinch to clean up — it’s also a flavorful, moist way to prepare chicken breast.

This recipe bakes in the oven for just 12 minutes, the perfect amount of time for you to warm up your tortillas and get your fajita toppings ready. (Or, even better, time for you to prepare your favorite margarita. No tequila on hand? Not to worry, you can use white wine with this clever and delicious margarita recipe.)

You can also cook these chicken fajitas on the grill outside if you don’t want to heat up the house on a sweltering summer day.

Alongside the chicken in your foil packet, you can include your favorite veggies and fajita must-haves, such as bell peppers, onions, grape tomatoes, mushrooms and, for those who love a little spice, thinly sliced jalapeno pepper or pasilla peppers.

You can serve the chicken fajitas on whole-grain tortillas, or if you are watching your carb count, you can layer the chicken fajitas over cauliflower rice or crisp butter leaf salad. We also love this idea for stuffing sweet potatoes with chicken fajitas for a veggie-forward twist on fajita night. This recipe for Twice Baked Chicken Fajitas Sweet Potatoes from Cafe Delites packs a nutrient punch that will have you feeling downright wholesome about your meal choice.

Top your fajitas with fresh pico de gallo, sour cream or homemade guac. Then, pour your refreshing cocktail of choice and dig in.

Bon appétit!
