Ingredients

  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 zucchini chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Heat grill on medium-high heat. Or, if you’re using an oven, pre-heat to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut 4 squares of foil, roughly 12”x12” in size. Set aside.
  3. Combine all your ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  4. Distribute the mixture evenly into the center of each of the 4 foil sheets.
  5. Fold the edges of the foil over to create 4 sealed packets.
  6. Place the foil packets on the grill and grill about 20 minutes (10 minutes per side). If you’re baking in the oven, place the packets on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Serve hot as is or with your favorite side.
