If you’ve never cooked dinner in a foil packet, you’re missing out. These dinners are so flexible, we absolutely love them around our house. Just toss in your favorite combination of meat, veggies, and sauce, wrap up in foil and stick in the oven. Even better than a one-pot meal, these foil packets just get thrown away! While the foil packet meal is a staple of campers everywhere, we like to bring the meal home and spice it up a bit. Here is one of our favorite versions of the foil packet meal: Italian chicken. Mozzarella, tomato, onion, parsley, and Italian dressing marinate the chicken and bake together in the foil, making the chicken extra tender and juicy!

- Arrange chopped garlic, onion, and tomato pieces around each chicken breast.
- Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of dressing over chicken and veggies, and top with shredded mozzarella and parsley.
