Recipe Info

Chicken Fajitas in Foil are incredibly delicious and quickly prepared with chicken, peppers, onions and rice all cooked in foil packets. Easy, quick, and so, so good!

4 large sheets of foil
cooking spray
Fajita Seasoning Mix (home made is fine)
1 cup white minute rice
1 cup warm water
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 orange bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 T olive oil
½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
lime juice

Optional Garnishes:
sliced avocados
sour cream

Preheat oven to 200˚C/400˚F. Spray the foil sheets with cooking spray and set aside. Prepare the Fajita Seasoning Mix. Combine rice, water, and 1 tablespoons fajita seasoning mix in a bowl; stir until well incorporated. Using a slotted spoon, divide the rice mixture evenly over each foil sheet. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and rub with some of the fajita seasoning mix. Place the chicken breasts over the rice. Arrange the peppers and onions on the sides of each chicken breast. Drizzle olive oil over all the ingredients. Combine the shredded cheeses and divide the cheese mixture evenly over each chicken breast. Fold the sides of the foil over the chicken, covering it completely, and seal the packets closed. Transfer the foil packets to a large baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 33 minutes or until the chicken’s internal temperature registers at 75˚C/165˚F. Remove from the oven and carefully open up the foils away from your face. Put the packets under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Remove from the broiler and squeeze lime juice over the food. Garnish with sliced avocados, sour cream, and cilantro, and serve.
