This tastes really good, but be sure to cook the potatoes *before* you add them to the parcels. Otherwise the potatoes don't cook through all the way, and if you increase the cooking time as another reviewer suggested, I found that the chicken got tough. I've made this twice and the second time I microwaved the potatoes until tender before mixing them with everything else and cooking. That seemed to work pretty well.
This is an easy to prepare recipe for camping, but it can also be made at home either on the grill or in the oven. Just wrap in a packet and cook until chicken and potatoes are done.
Good flavour, but if you cook it in the oven make sure you double the cooking time.
I have tried this recipe with success and will be making it for our July 4th BBQ.
Perfect for camping. You don't need to precook your potatoes.....just cut them a little smaller. Have been making similar recipes like this for years and when having trouble with potatoes, I just add a few ice cubes to the foil pack and it helps steam the potatoes. Awesome!
We do a similar recipe when we go camping. We use canned potatoes so they cook about the same time as the other veggies. We even add velvetta cubes (instead of BBQ) for a cheesy sauce. YUM!!
I've never had a problem with the potatoes being raw and we like our vegetables to have a bit of bite. So, with that being said the peppers will not be soggy and cooked all the way through. Some people like their veggies soft, so if that is your preference then definitely saute them first if you can. If you are cooking over a fire and that is your only source of heat, I recommend cooking the potatoes and vegetables in a separate parcel. Double wrap with foil and put the veggies on about 10-15 minutes before you put the chicken on. My mom made these for us when we were kids and it's something I've made a number of times since. Make sure you dice your potatoes, also, if you are cooking in one parcel. That should help with the evenness issue. The other tip is to ensure that you aren't sticking these things directly in the flame! If you do, the protein will cook and the rest will be raw.
Simple, quick, and quite good. As mentioned before, I cooked the potatoes a bit before mixing everything together.
