30-Minute Greek Chicken & Veggie Packets

3 posts in a week has got to be a record or something, right? For me, anyway. Today, I’m sharing a really yummy & easy “recipe” (if you can call it that) for 30-Minute Greek Chicken & Veggie Packets.

Psst: I’m sharing a printer friendly version below!

Being the social media fiend that I am (or was… I kinda hate it now), I’ve seen my fair share of grilled or baked food packets. NO MESS! They claim. SO EASY A MONKEY CAN DO IT! Well, some monkeys are smarter than humans so that’s not saying much.

But you guys. Really. This meal is stupid easy. You need some minor knowledge of how to use a knife (or you can buy pre-cut veggies), and really the most strenuous part of this meal is turning on the oven! IT’S THAT SIMPLE. And you need to wrap your food up but it’s much easier than wrapping Christmas gifts. Promise.

This meal is definitely going into my regular rotation. There is next to no clean-up. These packets are easy to transport (for lunch! picnics!). You can even grill these for weekend barbecues. Or weekday BBQ. In which case – GET TO WORK (kidding, I’m so jealous. I so totally love working when it’s nice out! Not). Wow. What a coincidence: MEMORIAL DAY IS COMING. MAKE THIS FOR YOUR FRIENDS! They’ll love you. (Don’t forget a cheesy dip and some fried food too, though)

before

All you need is: aluminum foil, chopped veggies (I used green & red bell pepper, eggplant, and garlic), chicken tenders, some salt & pepper, and your favorite Greek dressing. Don’t have Greek dressing? Use some oil & herbs (dill, oregano, thyme, basil – whatever you have) and shake shake shake.

all wrapped up

Pre-heat your oven to 375F. Take four sheets of aluminum foil and make a boat. In your boat, lay your chicken, veggies, s+p, and marinade. Fold your boat up like you see in the photo above.

Bake your boats for oh… about 15 minutes. Remember, I’m using tenders. If you’re using a thicker piece of chicken (like giant breasts), you’ll want to leave in the oven for about 25 minutes.

after cooking

Remove from the oven. Unfold your boats. Plate and serve with some quinoa, a salad, whatever your heart desires. You got yo’ self a good meal here! And there you have it, folks. 30-Minute Greek Chicken & Veggie Packets.
