Equipment

  • 4 sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil cut into 12 x 18 inches in size

Ingredients

  • 20 ounces chicken thighs or breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup ranch dressing
  • ¼ teaspoon Sriracha sauce optional
  • ½ cup carrot diced
  • ½ cup green beans chopped
  • ½ cup plum tomatoes diced
  • ½ cup red onion diced
  • ½ cup corn kernels

Instructions

  • Lay sheets of aluminum foil on the counter and mist with cooking spray.
  • Place 1-2 chicken thighs, side by side, in the center of each piece of aluminum foil.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over the chicken thighs.
  • Combine dressing and sriracha sauce in a small bowl.
  • Spoon 1 Tablespoon of dressing over each portion of chicken thighs.
  • Top each portion of chicken thighs with about ½ cup of vegetables
  • Drizzle 1 Tablespoon of dressing over the top of the vegetables.
  • Bring sides of foil up to the center to meet and crimp tightly with a small ½ inch fold.
  • Crimp sides tightly with a small ½ inch fold, allowing room for air to circulate.

To Grill

  • Place foil packets on the grill over medium high heat.
  • Close lid and cook for about 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

To Cook in Oven

  • Preheat oven to 425 °F.
  • Place foil packets on a baking sheet and cook for 35 minutes or until cooked through.

Before Serving

  • Open packets VERY CAREFULLY to avoid burn from the steam. Eat from packet or remove to a plate to enjoy!

Notes

  1. Chicken is done when the internal temperature reaches 165 °F. For best results, remove one packet and test with a meat thermometer.
  2. The cook time will vary depending upon the thickness of the chicken. We used chicken thighs which were not very thick. 
  3. Chicken can also be cubed to cook faster and it will be easier to eat straight out of the foil packet.
  4. To keep the carb count down, limit starchy vegetables like corn and carrots and use more green vegetables.
  5. Use a marker to label with each person's name if the packets are different!
