Chili Lime Chicken Foil packs save the day for camping meal prep! Assembled in just a few minutes and packed into the cooler, these foil packs are perfect for your next camping trip.
Chili lime chicken anything is good in my books. But, the camping style version. Come.to.mamma.
Foil pack meal prep is my go to method for the summer.
There is a difference in how the chicken comes out in a foil pack vs right on the grill. Foil pack chicken is quite a bit more moist. With all of the moisture kept in the foil pack, you get a steaming effect and you can easily cut the chicken with just your fork - which is perfect for camping!
Perfect for camping prep, but also for weeknights where we can come home, and just put a couple foil packs onto the grill. You can even go super efficient and eat right out of the packs!
The ultimate no dishes meal.
I always use heavy duty foil for my foil packs to avoid the ripping. But, if you can't find heavy duty you can always double wrap to prevent them from falling apart. I find heavy duty foil at the dollar store!
If you are going to prep and freeze these - awesome, but I do find the thaw process can be a bit messy with foil packs. So, to keep things a bit cleaner if I plan to freeze them, I use foil containers - also from the dollar store. You can see how I do that in this "Prep Ahead Healthy Camping Meal Prep" post!
