Garlic Herb Chicken

Foil Packet Garlic Herb Chicken with Seasonal Vegetables

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 organic 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.

  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (rosemary, oregano, parsley, basil, etc.)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 bulb fennel, cored and cut into slices

  2. Place one piece of chicken in the middle of a piece of foil.
  3. Spread 1/4 of the herb mixture on top. Add 1/4 of the zucchini, fennel, and onions.
