Recipe Club: BBQ Chicken and Veggies Foil Pack Dinner

Today, I'm linking up with Johannah & Heather for their monthly recipe linkup series! 

Summer may not be my favorite season, BUT there are certain things that I L.O.V.E. about this time of year. One being the fresh garden produce! We don't have a garden ourselves (and probably never will), but several family members do and keep us stocked on fresh goodies during the Summer months. 

For the afternoons that you get home from work, and really don't FEEL like cooking, but also don't want to spend the money to eat out, this recipe is just for you! 

What you'll need to make this all-in-one foil pack dinner: 
(This made 4 packets, but just add more of everything to make the amount of meals you need.)

2 medium size yellow squash
2 medium size zucchini
1 large onion
2 tomatoes
Salt, Pepper, EVOO
Your favorite BBQ sauce
2-3 chicken breasts (the ones I had on hand were HUGE, so I cut 2 in half to make 4 packets)

What to do:

Preheat oven to 400.
Chop and/or slice all your veggies.
Tear off large squares of aluminum foil.
Place chicken breast on foil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, brush on BBQ size. Repeat for other side. 

Top each chicken breast evenly with chopped veggies, drizzle with EVOO, sprinkle salt and pepper or favorite dry seasoning mix. (I use Krazy Jane's Seasonings Mixed Up Salt)

Fold all ends of the foil together to avoid any openings,and pop in the oven. 

Bake for 30-40 minutes until chicken is cooked thoroughly. 

Dinner is served and even better, there is NO cleanup! 

You can absolutely make this recipe to your family's liking by throwing in your favorite veggies, which may not be squash or zucchini. You could also do this on the grill, but a better grill expert than yours truly would have to weigh in on grill time, because I have no clue. Stephen is the griller in our house! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check in with today's linkup for more great recipes to try in your kitchen!!

  3. Oh yum! I am definitely adding this to next week's menu! I love meals that don't require a lot of dishes to clean up! Thanks for sharing!
