BBQ Chicken & Cheddar Foil Dinners

The other day I was trying to search out a yummy new HEALTHY recipe. This is what I settled for. I found it on the Calorie King website. They are very easy and quick to make plus they are pretty yummy! It was also something fun to mix the normal swing of things in the winter! But it made us long for summer and campfire cooking!

BBQ Chicken & Cheddar Foil Dinner

  • 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.
