"Outdoor cooking without the mess! Chicken breasts topped with peppered bacon are sealed together with potatoes, carrots, and onions in individual foil pouches. Perfect for the grill, or even right on the campfire coals." — DEESOSA

carrots, peeled and chopped
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
garlic salt to taste
Since we tried this recipe, we've gone nuts with it. Everybody wants to do their own little "packet" and pick their own vegetables. Nothing gets waisted, everybody's happy and THE GRILL STAYS CLEAN. We'll be doing this all summer.
This recipe was delicious but I would omit the chicken. Chicken came out very dry and flavorless. I would follow the recipe for some tasty veggies and then grill the chicken separately.
Sooo good! And surprisingly juicey!
I seared my chicken breasts in a pan first and than placed the chicken ontop of red potatoes and carrots. I added an onion slice ontop of that and than followed the rest of the recipe.
I did cook my red potatoes in the microwave for 3 mins after they were chopped. I read other reviews saying their potatoes weren't cooked all the way through and that would solve the problem.
A total keeper! Thank you!
I do this in the oven AND on the grill. If you get a seasoned or marinated piece of meat the veggies are even more flavorful let alone the meat. This is a HUGE hit with the kids and with me... I love the lack of clean up!!! Also... I think those over cooked potatoes on the bottom are delish!! Turn half way through cooking to avoid scorching. Mini carrots caramelize and are fabulous! Haven't had this recipe listed... but make mine fequently.
Everyone loved it. I liked the cleanup. My problem was the potatoes on the bottom of the foil pouch burned.
I've made this/similar recipes by double-layering the foil and putting it on the outskirts of a campfire, on a grill, in the oven, and w/o the foil en masse in a pressure cooker. I don't add butter to it, but instead add zesty italian dressing over the top. Everyone I've ever served this to has loved it and has started doing it themselves.
Very good and easy. I sprayed the aluminum foil with cooking spray to keep the potatoes from sticking. I had no problem with them burning. But, I made sure to flip the packet over so they weren't on the bottom. The only change I would make would be to marinate the chicken ahead of time to give it some more flavor.
We made this on the campfire coals and it was a big success! Spray the foil. We changed the order from the bottom building up; Slice of onion(buffer to keep chicken from burning), then chicken, bacon, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, butter & also added Lawry's Garlic and Herb Marinade.
