BBQ Chicken and Potatoes Packet that even my kids liked!

When we were on vacation, I would check in on facebook daily during our down time. One day, I came across a recipe for BBQ Chicken and Cheddar Foil Packet dinner that I thought looked so tasty. 

Well, Monday night I was actually home all day, so I decided to give it a try for dinner, with a few modifications on my part. (If you want the original recipe, click the link above). It was super easy to put together and SO GOOD! Even my picky children loved it. Jacob said it "was the greatest recipe ever!" 

My adaptation of
BBQ Chicken and Potatoes Packet

8 TBSP BBQ Sauce (any brand, I used Calhoun's from the restaurant we went to on vacation)
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts- thawed
4 red potatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced or 4 jalapenos, sliced
black pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
Lay 4 sheets of tin foil rectangles on your counter.
On each rectangle, layer 1 TBSP BBQ sauce, 1 chicken breast, 1 TBSP BBQ sauce, 1 potato thinly sliced, 1/8 of the red onion slices or 1 jalapeno sliced, and a dash of black pepper for seasoning. 
Fold over the tin foil and the sides to make a packet. 
Repeat to make 4 packets.
Place packets on baking sheet. 
Bake at 375 for 50-60 minutes. 
Remove from oven, open packets with scissors. 
Top each with 1/4 cup cheddar cheese. 
Return to oven to melt cheese (about 2 minutes).
Remove from oven and enjoy! 

I served ours with a side salad to make it a full meal. So simple and healthy! And SO YUMMY!


  1. A recipe the whole family likes - that sounds like a keeper to me!!

  2. And now I'm hungry. I bet this would be great on the grill. It would be even better if I could get Den to cook it.
