Onion Chicken and Veggies Foil Packets

Super happy to be sharing this healthy recipe with you, it’s one of my favorites. Low calorie Onion Chicken and Veggies Foil Packets is an easy meal to make and it’s great every time. Sealing and baking the meal in foil allows the chicken to stay moist and the bold flavors of the onion soup mix blends beautifully together with fresh veggies. The added bonus is that there won’t be much to clean up when you’re done…just throw the foil away. Yay!

Chicken over veggies.

Start with the foil

I eyeball the foil when I tear it out, but plan on approximately 15″ per packet. The idea is to load the items off center so that you can fold the foil over and seal three sides. If you cut your first piece of foil too small, just use two pieces of foil (a top and a bottom) and seal all four sides.

Pre-baked veggies topped with chicken breast, butter, and onion soup mix.

Veggies on the bottom

For each foil packet, lay out the asparagus to look like a little raft. Add your yellow squash and sliced mushrooms. Add a sprinkle of garlic powder over the veggies.

Time for the chicken

Season the chicken with Lawry’s Season Salt and pepper, then place the chicken on top of the veggies.

Add your butter on top of each piece of chicken.

Then, using a teaspoon, sprinkle the onion soup mix evenly over the chicken.

All that’s left is to seal your packets and place the packets on a sheet with low sides or in a glass dish; just in case some of the juices and melted butter sneaks out.

Bake the packets in a 375° oven for approx. 25 minutes. The chicken should be deliciously moist and no longer pink.

A word of caution: make sure your chicken is only 5 oz. If you use a larger piece of chicken you will have to cook it longer, in which case the veggies will be over-cooked and very mushy.

Mushy veggies are gross. Also, be very careful when opening the foil packets; once they’re baked, the steam coming out will be very very hot.

This is a great meal alone, or you could add potatoes or my Less Boring Wild Rice with it.

I’m thinking for dessert, my Chewy Gooey Walnut Brownies would go nicely.
