Foil Packet Garlic Herb Chicken is a quick healthy meal with minimal cleanup. Yeah! Perfect for hot summer nights when you don’t want a heavy meal or to heat up the kitchen.
Foil packets are wonderfully versatile. Mix it up with whatever vegetables are in season to get the best flavors and highest nutritional value.
This version of Garlic Herb Chicken has an Italian flair with a medley of zucchini, fennel, and onions paired with garlic and a mix of herbs such as rosemary and oregano. All of the vegetables are low in calories but contain plenty of fiber to help you feel full and contain significant amounts of antioxidants like vitamin C to help prevent cell-damaging oxidative stress.
