Easy Parchment Packet BBQ Chicken Fajitas Recipe

This no-muss, no-fuss chicken dinner for one is as easy as it gets. You simply preheat the oven, chop some bell peppers and onion, season a chicken breast, then wrap the chicken and veggies into a parchment packet to bake in the oven. In just 40 minutes (or less), you can have a homemade, protein-packed dinner ready to plate and devour. It’s the perfect weeknight recipe to make when you don’t want to wash a bunch of dishes or spend a lot of time thinking about what to cook. We turned our cooked chicken and veggies into chicken fajitas made with grain-free tortillas, sliced avocados, cilantro leaves and Primal Kitchen BBQ Ranch Dressing as a zesty, unexpected sauce. Primal Kitchen Cilantro Lime Dressing would pair beautifully with this recipe as well.
