Healthy Camping Meal–Chicken Foil Packets

I’ve been trying really hard to work out and eat as healthy as possible this summer which can be difficult with all of the vacations I’ve been taking. I went camping over the weekend and wanted to watch what I was eating at least a little bit and needed a meal that would be easy to cook on our portable grill.

I included 3 staple nutrients….protein, carb/starch, vegetables. These were extremely easy to make and everyone loved them!

Ingredients:

  • BBQ Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • Chicken (1 piece for each person)
  • Red Potatoes (1-2 per person depending on the size)
  • Onions (I cut up 2 for 6 ppl)
  • Peppers (I cut up 2 for 6 ppl)
  • Seasoning of you choice (I used salt, pepper, and garlic powder)

**If you are following the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan, measure out the ingredients for red (protein), green (vegetables), and carbs/starches (yellow).**

To make the process easier, I chopped everything up beforehand and laid out 6 square pieces of tin foil on my countertop.

I started by putting about 1 tablespoon of BBQ sauce in the center of each foil and then put 1 piece of chicken on top of the sauce and added more sauce on top of the chicken.

Then, I put a good sized handful of potatoes on top of the chicken. I didn’t measure out how much of the potatoes, onions, and peppers went in each foil. I just eyed them and tried to make each foil packet even.

After the potatoes I then put the onions and then peppers on top.

I sprinkled salt, pepper, and garlic powder all over the ingredients and then closed the foil packets up as tightly as I could.

Because there is raw meat involved, make sure you keep these refrigerated until it is time to cook.

Once the packets are tightly sealed, there is no more work to be done…you can put the packets right on top of your grill, in the oven, or over a fire (the fire put on our site didn’t have a grill  to put food on so we used our portable grill).

Surprisingly it only took about 10-15 minutes for this meal to be completely cooked. It was awesome to not have to do any food prep and just put them on the grill after setting up camp. The chicken was extremely moist and everything tasted so awesome!!!!

My husband and father-in-law wanted to add some cheese to theirs so right before I took the packets off of the grill I sprinkled cheddar cheese on top. It looked delicious!!!

Everyone enjoyed this easy and healthy meal so I’ll definitely be cooking this again!
