Campsite Recipes: Tex-Mex White Bean Chicken Packets

Hitting the great outdoors can sometimes mean munching down on a lot of unhealthy snack bars, but it doesn’t always have to be this way. Try these delicious Tex-Mex-flavored chicken packets for a quick and easy alternative!

What You Need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (10oz) can of diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 (15oz) can of navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can of corn bits
  • ½ cup shredded cheese, Mexican blend
  • 1 tbsp Mexican Spice Blend (or more to taste!)
  • 1 chopped green onion to top
  • 4 tin-foil squares, about 18″ x 12″

How To Make It:

  1. Combine all ingredients, except the cheese and green onion, in a large bowl.
  2. Place ¼ of the mixture on each foil square, then fold up the tinfoil so that the mixture won’t leak when turning the packet over the fire.
  3. Place packets on a BBQ grill or the grate over a campfire and cook for 20-25 minutes, turning the packets occasionally so that everything is cooked evenly.
  4. When the chicken has been cooked thoroughly, remove from the fire and cool slightly.
  5. Turn out the foil packets onto a plate, top with cheese and green onion.
  6. Enjoy!
