Tin Foil Chicken Fajitas

Are you guys so excited for the week of Tin Foil dinners? I tried really hard to think outside of the box with these things. I love the classic tin foil dinners that are packed with meat and potatoes, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little diversity. We love fajitas. It’s our secret way of sneaking in some different veggies into our meal without our little one really noticing. Last time we made them my hubby had a genius idea to make tin foil chicken fajitas the next time we are out camping. I put a pin in it and was determined to remember.

Lucky for you we remembered and created a quick meal that has almost no clean up. Isn’t that the whole point of these things? Bake and toss?! I absolutely love that.


Tin Foil Chicken Fajitas


  • 1-1/2 cups cooked white rice
  • taco seasoning
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • cheese
  • tortillas


  1. Create four rectangles of heavy duty foil. We like to double up… Just to be safe. Fold up the sides creating a 1 inch rim.
  2. Spray your containers with cooking spray and divide the rice between them evenly. Top with your remaining ingredients. Make sure you evenly distribute the salsa and use more if necessary. Fold up the sides to create your packet.
  3. Outdoor cooking: Place your packets onto prepared coals. Cook for 30 minutes making sure to turn a few times.
  4. At home cooking: Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.



Be careful when you first open your pouch. They get pretty hot and I’ve burned my hands a few times on the hot steam. I’d hate for one of you (or your kids) to be surprised by the hot blast that comes out right at the start.

Top these with salsa and sour cream. Eat them as is or rolled inside a soft tortilla. Either way you are sure to be a hit with all of your camping guests!

    I am so excited for your tin foil dinner week. You started the week off with a great bang. I love chicken fajitas so much but have never thought of cooking them over a fire! We love camping, so I can’t wait to try this next time we go! (Which may be a while, with baby coming)
