This easy chicken and veggies meal cooks up nicely in a foil packet. THM E, Paleo and Low Fat.

Easy Recipe with Easy Clean Up!

This delicious Chicken Foil Pack recipe is a great “whole food” meal for those of us that desire to feed ourselves and our families well. With three main ingredients (and spices of course), and a simple foil packet we can make a delicious and healthy meal.

Many times I feel like the recipes I post here need to be over the top impressive for you, my readers. However, in thinking that way I have realized that I have missed out on sharing some great basic meals like this foil packet lunch.  It is extremely easy and makes clean up a breeze.  I don’t know about you but in my eyes that makes a meal like this a instant favorite. Any time there are less dishes to wash how could we go wrong, right? This meal can be baked and eaten from the foil packet if you like, equaling even fewer dishes!

This meal is low-fat, gluten-free and it would work well for the Whole 30 and Paleo diets. If you’re following the THM diet then this recipe is a great “E” fuel.

Another great thing about this Chicken Foil Packet recipe is that it is easily cooked for just yourself or multiplied to feed your family. Ingredients can also be changed around easily. So if someone doesn’t like green beans, no problem sub another non-starcy veggie like broccoli.

My husband follows a more Ketogenic diet so he doesn’t eat sweet potatoes. When I make these packet for him I sub radishes instead. So those will work better if you want to change it up a little or if you are looking for a lower carb version.

    Single Serve
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and sliced
  • 4 oz fresh green beans
  • 1 tsp butter or coconut oil
  • seasoning of choice, I use salt, garlic powder, onion powder
  • Recipe Notes: To feed a family with this recipe simply make a packet with the ingredients above for each person. You can also add more flavor to your chicken by marinading it in a bit of lemon juice and dill, but that is optional.


  1. This meal will need to be baked in a preheated 400 degree oven.
  2. Peel the sweet potato and slice it in thin slices or cubes. The slices or cubes just need to e small enough to bake tender in the allotted time.
  3. Wash and remove the ends from your fresh green beans and set them aside with the sweet potato.
  4. For your protein remove any excess fat from the breast and season to your liking. I like to marinate my chicken in a little lemon and dill but this is optional. To do that place it in a bowl with the lemon juice and dill. I also add a dash of salt. Toss it around a bit to coat the chicken. Let it set for at least 15 minutes. This step can be done the night before for even more flavor.
  5. Once your ingredients are ready take two pieces of heavy duty foil and lay them flat on the counter, making sure they over lap well. This overlapping will seal the packet and prevent leakage.
  6. Start building your packet by laying your sweet potatoes on the bottom and placing your green beans on to of them.
  7. At this point I season with my favorite seasonings. I sprinkle ours with garlic and onion powder and salt. Add the butter or coconut oil to the to of the veggies.
  8. Next place your chicken breast over the top of your veggies. As the chicken cookies the juices will not only flavor the veggies it will also help stem the potatoes. Making them flavorful and tender.
  9. Next close up your foil packets by bringing the sides together and rolling them down toward the food. Roll your end down to form a fully closed packet.
  10. Place your packet(s) on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 400 degree oven. Bake the foil packet for 40-45 minutes.
  11. Once bake carefully remove the packets from the oven and open them cautiously. There will be stem that comes out of the packets so avoid burning yourself.
  12. Serve the meal in the packets for easier clean up or remove the contents of the packet and serve them on a plate.
  13. Enjoy!
