Ingredients

  • Chicken Breasts- 4 boneless and skinless about a pound total.
  • Vegetables such as broccoli or potatoes- ¾-1 cup per foil packet 3-4 cups total cut up. This total can vary depending on the size of your foil pieces and how much they can hold. Mixing up your variety of vegetables is a good idea too.
  • Citrus fruit- 1-2 slices per packet. I am thinking about lemon or lime slices.
  • Italian salad dressing– 2 cups total.

Instructions

  • Start by preparing your foil squares. You can cut your squares (12X18″ works well) or use pre-cut foil sheets. If you are making this chicken in an oven, please pre-heat your oven to 350. Also, place an additional piece of foil flat on a baking sheet to bake these on. Otherwise, heat your grill or campfire as you normally would.
  • I like to lightly spray each piece of foil with nonstick before I place the ingredient on them to cook.
  • To assemble your first packet, place the chicken breast in the center of the piece of foil. Then use a spoon to drizzle a small amount of dressing on both side of the chicken (obviously, you will need to flip the chicken over to do this).
  • next, place the remaining ingredients in the packet and cover with the remaining dressing. Each packet should get ¼ cup of dressing total. However, if you go over or under this amount, you will probably be fine.
  • Bring the longest edges of the foil together, leaving a bit of room over the food, and seal them by folding them over a couple of times. Repeat this process until your packets are complete. At this point you can refrigerate, freeze or cook your chicken.
  • In the oven, place each packet on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked completely. Over the fire, the cooking time can vary depending on the heat however, medium heat can take around 30 minutes for the chicken to cook through. Take care when opening the packets to eat as there could be a burst of heat or steam when you do so.
