Low Carb Pineapple Chicken Fajita Foil Pack
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1 inch pieces
2 cups of fresh pineapple, chopped
½ cup olive oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Heat oven to 375°F. Cut 4 large sheets of foil.
In medium bowl, toss together 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, olive oil, red bell pepper, onion as well as sea salt and pepper. Be sure all ingredients are fully coated and mixed well.
Divide chicken and veggie mixture evenly on each sheet of foil. Bring up 2 sides of foil over chicken so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space on sides for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.
To grill, place foil packs on preheated grill. Cook 10 minutes. Turn packs over; cook 10 to 15 minutes longer or until chicken is fully cooked.
