I love foil packet meals you can make and prep ahead, like these Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets, and keep refrigerated or even frozen. So when you get home from your busy day, you can pop them in the oven and relax until dinner. The best part, easy clean up!

I mentioned in this Shrimp Scampi Foil Pack recipe, that I’m a 2018 Reynolds Ambassador, now that grilling season is over, I am creating foil packet recipes with meal prep in mind, because I know how busy you all are with work, kids, and life in general. Opening up one of these foil packets is like a celebration of Fall, with it’s colors and aroma. Nestled inside, you’ll find spicy chicken sauce, here I used Andouille but Italian or Kielbasa would also work great. These are a meal-in-one and so easy to make, just 5 ingredients not counting salt and pepper!

I love using Reynolds Wrap, it’s produced using food safety and quality standards, making the foil my go-to in the kitchen and on the grill. Heavy Duty Foil is also available in a wider 18-inch roll, great for larger foil packets to throw on the grill.

How To Make Foil Packets

  • Tear off an 18” sheet of foil.
  • Center the food on the foil sheet.
  • Bring up the long sides of the foil, so the ends meet over the food.
  • Double fold the ends, leaving room for heat to circulate inside.
  • Double fold the two short ends to seal the packet.
  • Bake in a preheated oven, 425F 25 minutes.

To Refrigerate and Heat:

Place uncooked packets upright in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When ready to cook, follow the directions for oven and bake time.

  1. I love making the Cajun shrimp foil packets because they freeze well–would this one freeze? I am not sure about how frozen Brussels would be–does anyone know??

  2. Excellent campfire meal.  Burst of flavors and the thyme just gives it a huge kick! Simple and nice taste.

  3. Super!
    Would love more foil packet recipes!!!
    I make a simple one with tilapia, soy sauce, a little oil, ginger.

      Would green beans hold up in this recipe? My husband doesn’t like brussel sprouts so I am looking for an alternative veggie.
