  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 2 large), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 5 cups peeled and cubed sweet potatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 5 cups diced red bell peppers (about 2 small)
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 small lime, cut into 6 wedges


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Cut six 12-inch lengths of heavy-duty foil. Coat each piece with cooking spray.
  2. Combine chicken, sweet potatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, salt, chili powder, cumin and oregano in large bowl; stir to coat thoroughly. Evenly divide the chicken mixture among the foil sheets (place on the side coated with cooking spray). Gather together the long ends of each foil piece, then fold up its open ends to form a packet.
  3. Cook until the vegetables are tender and lightly charred, turning halfway through, about 20 minutes total. Serve right away (be careful of steam when opening the packets), with lime wedges.

I made this recipe exactly except for halving everything as I was only cooking for 2. I made it in the oven like a previous reviewer. We really enjoyed this in tortillas and will definitely have it again.

To have a question, how can two small red peppers diced make 5 cups of red peppers as stated? The same for two medium sweet potatoes to 5 cups diced.

Extremely tasty and just as billed with a whole lot of veggies and just a bit of protein. Plenty of room for a small tortilla and taco sides. Everyone at the table was happy. I did it in the oven in two pans. The bottom with aluminium and covered with aluminium for 20 min at 425 degrees. Then I took off the top aluminium cover and left them open to bake some more for another 15 min. Just right.

This was a very tasty and easy supper to throw on the grill. I didn't make separate foil packets, just made one large foil pack and grilled a little longer. I served it with tortillas, Greek yogurt and shredded cheese. Yummmmm!!
