Can you believe summer is almost here? I don’t know about you, but this year seems to have flown by!
My kids get out of school for the summer starting next week, and it feels like school just started! Definitely a crazy year, huh?!
As summer approaches, that means hot, hot, hot weather here in Houston, TX. Lots of pool time, cranking down the A/C, and trying to minimize meals that heat up the kitchen.
One of our favorite meals to make are foil packets because we each get a packet and can change it up to fit preferences.
We make Shrimp Foil Packets which are a HUGE hit with my kids, and now…these Fiesta Chicken Foil Packets!
Last weekend, the kids were swimming and we needed to start thinking about dinner. I had pulled some chicken out to thaw, but that was about it. After going through our refrigerator, we tossed some ingredients into foil packets and headed to the grill.
Dinner was ready in no time and all the kids had to do was grab a plate, grab their packet, and dig in! Doesn’t get much easier than that!
If you want to change this up to fit your tastes, feel free! You can use a different seasoning, add in more/less veggies, and have fun with it!
Perhaps serve on its own or with some crescent rolls? You can even finish this simple meal off with a tasty dessert and try my Mini Banana Cream Pies!
