21-Day Fix Grilled Chicken Packets

Chicken Packet with Peppers, Mushrooms and Carrots – Yum!

Spring is in the air! Yesterday was finally warm outside, and we spent most of the evening cleaning up the yard and laying fertilizer on the grass. My husband is one of those guys who takes great pride in our yard. However, we have three dogs… our yard never looks good. After working in the yard, I didn’t feel like cooking dinner. So, we decided to bust out the grill for the first time this year!

One of my go-to grill recipes is a chicken packet. They are easy to make, and are so yummy. My chicken packets although delicious, are not 21-Day Fix approved. So, last night I pulled out my Fixate book and turned our yummy chicken packets into yummy and healthy packets!

Yesterday I ate both of my yellows at breakfast and lunch, so I was out of yellows. I had a good amount of veggies on hand, and needed something filling to compensate for the Girl Scout cookies I ate at lunch (oops!). I choose red and yellow peppers, broccoli, carrots and mushrooms for my veggies, and seasoned with a teaspoon of olive oil, seasoning salt, pepper and chili powder for some kick.

One of the best things about these packets are they can be customized to fit each person’s taste. My kids aren’t fans of peppers or broccoli, so I only added carrots and mushrooms to their packets. My husband wanted BBQ chicken so I added BBQ sauce to his instead of olive oil. This really helps with only cooking one meal and everyone still getting their favorites!

Choose your veggies, and customize to every one’s taste

Directions:
-Wash and cut veggies
-Cut aluminum foil at 12-15”: enough to fit chicken and veggies with some excess to fold.
-Place chicken in the middle of the foil and place cut veggies around the chicken
-Drizzle chicken and veggies in olive oil and season to taste
-Fold aluminum foil so all of the juices don’t run out
-Cook on a heated grill for 40-50 minutes depending on your grill and settings. We cooked ours at 300 degrees for 40 minutes. If you have a charcoal grill it may be a longer cooking time.

Make sure the foil is large enough to add all the ingredients and fold

I served the chicken packets along side butter and Parmesan noodles for the kids and hubby. On my plate I had chicken, veggies and a purple of all natural applesauce.

    1. I’ve never tried this recipe in the oven. It should cook the same or very similar, as long as the chicken and veggies are wrapped in foil. If you try it, let me know. I would love to know how it turned out!
