The hot weather of summer is finally here and that means a lot less time using my oven and stove and many more meals cooked on the grill! Wahoo! These Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets are beyond easy to make and a family favorite. Who doesn't like marinara sauce and melted cheese?

Grilled Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets
Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets have only 7-ingredients, a few which you probably already have on hand. My kids love anything covered in marinara sauce so I knew that they would love these foil packets. I used zucchini since we had it on hand and because I think that zucchini goes really well with Italian-style food. Green beans, mushroom, broccoli and onions would also go really well in these packets.

These Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets can be a complete meal as is or you can pair them with some pasta or rice. I also love grilling some potatoes and pairing it with these foil packets. Or they would be great with some grilled garlic bread!

Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets Nutrition

Chicken Parmesan Foil Packets are much healthier than your typical chicken parmesan because the chicken is not breaded or fried. I added the zucchini for some extra nutrients and fiber. Feel free to bulk these up with more veggies.

I served the foil packets on the Mikasa American Countryside dinnerware set. We are keeping this beautiful country chic set at my parent's farmhouse. I like that they look so beautiful but are also microwave and dishwasher safe. They look even better in person than in the ad online.

To make sure that the chicken was cooked through, I took the temperature using my Taylor digital thermometer. It works in just a few seconds and folds up really small so it does not take up a lot of room in my drawer.

  1. Do you think these could be done in an air fryer? They look delicious!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I think it could work in an air fryer. I'm not sure how the cooking instructions would change though.
