Moving? Tired? HUNGRY?
During the hustle and bustle of a stressful move, preparing dinner almost never makes the top of a priority list (and let's be honest, most of us won't look like the spotlessly clean and smiling family pictured above). Moving is HARD WORK. Between unpacking all your pots and pans and making sure none of your china was broken along the way, who has time for anything other than ordering a pizza? Now with these easy pan-free recipes, YOU DO! All of the following recipes are fast, pan-free, and EASY clean-up (for added convenience, make sure you pick up some paper plates and plastic cutlery at the grocery store)!
Foil-Pack Chicken Fajitas

1.5 Cups hot water
1 Tbsp taco seasoning mix
4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 green bell pepper (chopped)
1 red pepper (chopped)
0.5 Cup tomato salsa
0.5 Cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
Heat oven to 400°F. Fold up all sides of 4 large sheets heavy duty foil to form 1-inch rim; spray with cooking spray. Mix rice, water, and seasoning; divide into spoon onto foil. Top with remaining ingredients. Bring up foil sides; fold to make 4 packets. Place on metal cookie sheet (or disposable aluminium pan) to prevent dripping. Bake 30-35 minutes or until chicken is done. Cut slits in foil to release steam and let rest 5 minutes. Serves 4.

Set parchment on metal cookie sheet (or disposable aluminium pan); Layer shrimp and carrots on top of broccoli, cover with remaining marinade. Season with pepper.

Repeat for each packet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Serves 4.
