How to Make Thai Chicken Foil Packets

Using one piece of foil spray the center of the foil with the non-stick spray.

Using a slotted spoon place 1/3 cup of drained rice on the foil.

Place one-fourth of the chicken pieces on top of the rice.

Season with salt, pepper, and ginger.

Add the vegetables on top of the chicken in the amounts desired.

Add chili flakes if desired, it does make it spicier!

Top with cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Bring the long edges of the foil to meet at the center and fold a crease together at the top and then roll the foil down but do not press the foil all the way down onto the food, leave a gap inside the foil for air to circulate around the food. This helps create the amazing, tender texture and incredible flavor you’re going to love!
