BBQ Chicken and Potato Foil Packet #camping meal.

When we're on the road for a long time like we are right now with this 70 Day Road Trip, I have to get a little more inventive than regular old burgers and hot dogs. That being said, I also do not enjoy cleaning a greasy dirty grill each night before we can pack it away in the van. So, for most of our trip, we rely on foil packet meals, which are meals where all of the ingredients can go into a packet made of tin foil and cook together. When you are done eating, just throw the packet away. No dishes to do and no grill to clean. This BBQ chicken and potato packet is a family favorite.

BBQ Chicken and Potato Foil Packet

(makes 5 packets)

2 lbs. of boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
1 small bag of small golden potatoes
Your favorite sweet BBQ sauce
Shredded cheddar cheese
Olive oil


Step 1: Cut the potatoes into small pieces and place evenly into 5 foil packets with some olive oil, salt and pepper. The olive oil keeps the potatoes from sticking to the bottom and burning.

Step 2: Fold the packets up, leaving a bit of room at the top for steaming and close the sides tightly. Cook the potatoes for about 15 minutes.

Step 3: Take the foil packets off the grill and open to add 2-3 chicken tenderloins and as much BBQ as you like. I usually add a few squirts to each packet.

Step 4: Close the packets up again and cook for an addition 15-25 minutes. Take one off the grill and check the chicken periodically.

Step 5: When the packets are done, add a few pinches of shredded cheddar cheese to the top, and serve.
