Chicken Fajitas & Rice in Foil

  • 4 large sheets of aluminum foil


Optional Garnishes:

  • sliced avocados
  • sour cream
  • cilantro


  1. First, preheat oven to 400F. 
  2. Then, spray foil sheets with cooking spray and set aside. 
  3. Prepare the Fajita Seasoning Mix. Combine rice, water, and 1 tablespoon Fajita Seasoning Mix in a bowl; stir until well incorporated. 
  4. Next, using a slotted spoon, divide the rice mixture evenly over each foil sheet. Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and rub with some of the Fajita Seasoning Mix. Place chicken over rice. 
  5. Arrange peppers and onions on the sides of each chicken breast. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over all the ingredients. Combine shredded cheeses and divide the cheese mixture evenly over each chicken breast. 
  6. Now, fold the sides of the foil over the chicken, covering completely; seal the packets closed. 
  7. Transfer the foil packets to a large baking sheet. 
  8. Bake for 30 to 33 minutes, or until chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165F. 
  9. Remove from and carefully open up the foils; put the packets under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes.
  10. Remove from broiler. Squeeze lime juice over food. Garnish and serve.

*Option- place on grill on medium-low heat for 30-45 min until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender.

    This is a great recipe ! We tried it several weeks ago but without the vegalene, then yesterday the vegalene finally arrived from amazon and we tried it again, it seems deliciously different with using the vegalene , is that some sort of secret spray ? I’d never used it before .

      Vegalene is a professional nonstick spray that we sell, and we think it’s the best too! It works so well for a perfect release of baked goods.
