How to Make Chicken Foil Packets:

1. First, get the 8 slices of foil out. You will want to use heavy duty foil for a foil pack so it won’t break when you are grilling. You can use regular foil but I recommend you double wrap it to avoid it breaking.

Spray each slice with non stick cooking spray.

2. Second, put rice on each section of foil.

3. Next, add black beans and corn to each pile of brown rice.

4. Finally, place a chicken breast on top of the veggies. Sprinkle with taco seasoning. Top with salsa and cheese. Yum!

Gently fold the foil on each side to make a packet.

How to Grill:

Simply place the foil packet on the grill for 30 minutes. Don’t forget to be really careful when opening the Santa fe chicken foil packet.

How to Bake:

After making each folk pack as normal, place in the oven. I find it easier to place on a baking sheet first. It just makes it easier to remove from the oven.

Bake until the chicken is cooked and the veggies are tender.

Foil packet dinner recipes make busy weeks so much better. Dinner is super easy.

  1. I would cook this in the oven at 350 for 20-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Thanks!

  2. I would cook at 350 for 20-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Thank you!

  3. 5 stars
    We LOVE this recipe! It’s one that my family eats up every time. It’s also easy to double so we can have for two nights of delicious dinners.

  4. Sorry I have updated that. We updated the recipe recently and we no longer include rice in this recipe.

  5. At the bottom of the recipe it says you can cook the foil packets at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Then in answer to some questions in the comment section you say 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Which is correct? Also, why filet the breasts? I notice that you say this serves 8, but you say to make four foil packets. Does each packet serve 2? I wondered if you maybe fileted the chicken breasts to make 8 servings? Sorry for all the questions…..this is something I’d really like to try and I just want for it to turn out great. Thanks!

  6. I’m sp sorry for the confusion – The recipe does make 8 servings and I corrected the typo in the recipe card so that it is no longer confusing. On the bake time, we recently updated this recipe and baked the packets to test it out and we found that baking at 425 degrees F was better so that this has recently been updated. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
