What Is A Foil Packet
If you haven’t made dinner in a foil packet yet, I am about to give you a hack you’ll be glad you found! Foil packet dinners are recipes where you place all the ingredients – the meat and veggies (or just one of those) – onto a large piece of foil.
Then, you fold the foil up and close it. This becomes a packet that seals in all the juices and flavors as it cooks.
You can make them either in the oven, on an outdoor grill, or right over an open campfire.
Foil Packet Dinners
There are a bunch of different ways you can make dinner using foil packets. I’ve made fish and broccoli this way, and even roasted veggies in foil packets. You can even make steak in a foil packet.
The ideas are endless.
In fact, after you make this recipe once, you’ll be a pro at it! Add your favorite vegetables and use different spices. Change it up so it’s different each time.
My biggest tip is to always use a food thermometer. This way, you will know exactly when the meat is fully cooked and safe to eat.
Summer Keto Dinner Ideas
In the summer, my favorite meals are ones we can make outside on the grill. When you place all the food into the foil packets, just put the packets in the grill and wait for them to cook. It’s so easy – and it fills your yard with the most enticing aromas too.
This is an entire meal in one pan – but if you want to add a few things to the table, here’s what I would make.
Chicken Foil Packets In The Oven
Yes, you can make foil packets in the oven. When you do this, they only take about 30 minutes to bake. That’s a super-fast dinner recipe that is ready in no time at all.
I love to garnish my chicken and veggies with fresh parsley and feta cheese. The cheese melts just slightly, giving it a tangy and slightly-creamy texture as I bite into it. It’s amazing!
Best Garlic Butter Chicken
Garlic butter is the best thing to use on meat. It infuses it with incredible flavor and makes the outside nice and crispy. I’ve used garlic butter on steak before and it turns out just as delicious.
Add the garlic butter to your veggies when you place them in the foil packets. Every single bite will be bursting with vibrant tastes!
Keto Camping Food
Pack some foil when you go camping, because foil packets are the best kind of keto-friendly camping food. Some people even put the foil packets right on top of the coals.
Others prefer to place them in a cast iron skillet and put the skillet on top of the coals. Either way, just keep an eye on the chicken to make sure it is cooking correctly and remove it when the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
My other favorite keto camping foods are burgers and chopped salads.
