Keto Low-Carb Cajun Chicken Packets Recipe
This Low-Carb Cajun Chicken Packets Recipe is one of my favorite methods of outdoor cuisine. Packet cooking can give you everything you need in a meal, with little hassle and virtually no clean-up.
- Prep Time: 30 min
- Cook Time: 20 min
- Total Time: 50 minutes
- Yield: 4 Servings 1x
- Diet: Diabetic
- 2 pounds chicken breast (about 3)
- 2 small yellow squash
- 2 small zucchini
- 2 cups mushrooms
- 8 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
- 1 stick butter (I prefer grass-fed butter)
- Cut chicken, zucchini, and squash into bite sized pieces. (Wash all produce.)
- Mix these and mushroom pieces, then sprinkle with 8 teaspoons Cajun seasoning mix (for a milder flavor, reduce to 4 tablespoons – If you are spice-intolerant, like me, 8 tablespoons can kick your butt). Mix well.
- Get four large sheets of tin foil (I use about 20 inches) and lay flat. Put 2 tablespoons butter in the bottom of the foil, then add 1/4 of the chicken veggie mix on top of the butter, in the middle, and fold long ends over each other (should almost completely overlap), then fold up short ends. (Don’t fold too tight, you want a little room for the steam.)
- Repeat procedure three times. Cook over high heat (450° F on my grill) for about 15-20 minutes. Chicken should be very tender and white all the way through.
