Paleo Chicken and Potato Fajita Foil Pack Meals

Author: Lisa Kerhin


  • 2 cups halved or quartered baby red potatoes
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into half-inch strips
  • 2 bell peppers cut into one-inch chunks (whatever color peppers you prefer)
  • 1 medium onion cut into one-inch chunks (white, yellow, red – all work well)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 – 3 tbsp homemade fajita seasoning*
  • Favorite fajitas toppings optional


To cook by the following methods:

    Grill: Grill over a medium flame for 15-20 minutes. Seam side up.

      Campfire: Cook in the hot coals of the fire until chicken is cooked through and veggies are tender. About 20 minutes.

        Oven: Bake Fajita Foil Packets in an oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

          Preparing the foil packs:

          • In a large bowl, combine potatoes, chicken, peppers, onions and oil. Stir until coated with the oil.
          • Toss chicken and veggies with the homemade fajita seasoning** until everything is coated with the seasoning.
          • For cooking in the oven: Lay a sheet of heavy duty foil (roughly 12″x 16” in size) and spray lightly with non-stick spray. If you are cooking over campfire or on the grill, use two sheets of foil together for each foil pack.
          • Add one quarter of the fajita mixture to the middle of each foil pack. Fold and seal by pinching the top and the side. Be sure it’s sealed well so that the steam doesn’t escape. Repeat with three more packets.
          • Cook by one of the methods above. Very important: Do not continually open the packets to check for doneness. When you open the foil packet, all the steam is released and it may take a lot longer to fully cook. My best tip is to pull just ONE pack (not all) out and test for doneness. If not done, seal back up and cook a few more minutes.
          • Serve with your favorite fajita toppings, if desired.


          * If you do have homemade fajita seasoning already made up, you can use 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/4 tsp black pepper.
          ** In a small bowl, stir together the above spices and then add to the chicken and veggie bowl, stirring to coat well.
