Grilled Sweet-And-Sour Chicken Packets

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

A simple grill recipe, different from other traditional grill meals. From Betty Crocker I think (someone passed it along to me).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.
  2. On one side of each foil piece, place 1 chicken breast. Top each with 1 tablespoon sweet-and-sour sauce and one-fourth of the pineapple, bell pepper and onion. Top with remaining sauce.
  3. Fold foil over chicken and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for heat expansion.
  4. When grill is heated, place packets on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill.
  5. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 10 minutes, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
  6. Place packets on plates. Cut large X across top of each packet; fold back foil. Top with chow mein noodles if desired.

I absolutely loved this meal! It was so simple and so YUMMY! Instead of doing it on the grill I baked them (still in the aluminum foil wraps) for about 30 minutes at 350. The sweet & sour sauce was a little runny after it was done baking, but I didn't mind because it made the chicken so moist. I put mine on brown rice and added the chow mein noodles on top. It was perfect and will definitely become a regular meal.

Fabulously MOIST chicken dinner! The whole meal was fantastic. The sweet and sour sauce was not overpowering at all and just added a nice touch of flavor to the chicken and the addition of onions, pepper (I used an orange pepper) and pineapple was a plus! I loved that there was no cleanup - just toss and go! Tagged for BBQ & Grilling Photo Event July 2008. This will be a staple grilling recipe for our family! Thanks for sharing!
