Keto Mediterranean Chicken Foil Packets

Easy-to-prepare, healthy Keto Mediterranean Chicken Foil Packets that are perfect for a family-friendly weeknight meal and those busy days.

Have you heard about the ketogenic diet? If not, it is a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet that forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. The carbs in our Keto Mediterranean Chicken Foil Packets are by and large mostly obtained from vegetables.  This is a dish that is easy to put together, yet big on flavor!  And you know what? You won’t have to wash a single pot to prepare this dish!  How can that be?  Well, check it out.

Our Mediterranean chicken foil packets are like no other. They are easy to prepare yet healthy… and you won’t wind up with any pots to wash.   I call it “the magic meal!” 🙂

I am not kidding… All you have to do is lay down slices of lemon, chicken breast, and a few vegetables such as canned artichoke hearts and Kalamata olives on to aluminum foil, and then top with lemon slices… Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and fresh lemon juice, place a sprig of rosemary on top, and then wrap and bake for about 25 minutes. Voilá… right there you have a healthy meal fit for a king!  Like I told you, it just can’t get any better than that, honey!!!

Right before serving, sprinkle on a bit of crumbled feta cheese and enjoy! These are great as a gluten-free weeknight meal, especially when you want to eat well after a busy and tiresome day of work.

This is my little way of enjoying a tasty meal while allowing for my busy-yet-health-conscious lifestyle. Life is all about balance; each of us has to find our own.  Healthy yet tasty food and moderate exercise are one way to find enjoyment without taking years off of one’s life… right?

I not only try to live by this principle, but also to pass it on to my children. Speaking of children, this dish is so easy that even a child could prepare it. There is nothing complicated about layering, seasoning, drizzling, and wrapping. As you see, it demands no special cooking skills. The same thing goes for cleaning up after preparing our Keto Mediterranean foil Packets.  Again, surely even a child can do that! Try also our 10-Minute, Healthy Fish Stew Foil Packets.

I hope you enjoy our Easy Keto Mediterranean Chicken Foil Packets, and have an amazing week!

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Tear off four double sheets of foil, about 12-inches long each.
  2. Place about 3 slices of lemon onto each foil. Fold up all 4 sides of each sheet of foil, forming each into a packet. Season both sides of each chicken breast with salt and pepper (and also paprika if desired). Lay one breast onto each foil sheet (on top of the slices of lemon). Drizzle each with the juice of one half of a lemon and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  3. Halve or quarter the artichoke hearts and distribute among the foil packets along with the whole olives, fitting them in on the sides. Top each chicken breast with remaining slices of lemon, and one sprig of rosemary for each. Fold the sides of each foil sheet over the chicken, covering completely, and then sealing the packets closed. Place foil packets in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 25-28 minutes.
  4. Right before serving, open the foil packets and sprinkle one tablespoon of feta cheese over each chicken breast. Enjoy them either by themselves or along with a fresh salad or hard-crusted bread.

    I’ll admit you caught my attention with no pots to clean, yeah! The chicken breasts will stay moist and soak up all those vibrant flavors in the easy weeknight dinner recipe, a winning combination!
