Suggestions: For camping or outdoor grill, pre-heat charcoal or grill and place packets on grill. Cook until chicken is cooked through.

Serves: 4 person(s)
Yield: 4 x chicken breasts

Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 37 mins


    3 Tbsp barbecue sauce
    4 small boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 lb)
    2 small unpeeled red potatoes, thinly sliced
    1 red or green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
    1 green onion, finely chopped
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    1 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese


    Preheat oven to 375ºF.

    Place a foil sheet, approximately 12 x 12 inches, on a work surface. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the barbecue sauce in the center of the foil sheet. Place one chicken breast half over barbecue sauce and spread another teaspoon of sauce over chicken. Top with a quarter of the potato, bell pepper and onion. Sprinkle with a little of the salt and pepper.

    Fold foil in half to cover contents; make narrow folds along edges to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients to assemble three more packets. Place packets on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.

    Open foil packets with scissors and carefully pull back edges (contents may be very hot). Sprinkle a quarter of the cheese over the top of each chicken breast half and return to oven, unsealed, for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. With a spatula, transfer the contents of each packet onto individual serving plates, if desired.
