- barbecue sauce
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut in half-inch strips
- 1 green pepper, sliced in rings
- 1 red pepper, sliced in rings
- 4 small new potatoes, sliced thin
- frozen corn (optional)
- frozen peas (optional)
- onion, diced (optional)
- canned mushroom slices (optional)
- additional barbecue sauce (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Tear off four sheets of foil (preferably heavy duty), each about 12 by 15 inches. Smear about a tablespoon of barbecue sauce in a rough rectangular shape in the middle of each sheet.
- Divide the chicken slices among the four sheets atop the barbecue sauce. Add the peppers, potatoes and any other vegetables. Drizzle another tablespoon of barbecue sauce over top.
- In half-inch pleats, fold the foil over itself first lengthwise and then crosswise to create tightly sealed packets. Note: Don’t wrap the packets so tightly that the contents might poke holes in the foil.
- Place on a baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Carefully cut open the packets. Note: Opening the hot, steam-filled packets is a job best left to adults.
- Note: Left sealed, the packet contents stay hot for a long time, making this technique a supper stabilizer for nights when everyone’s on different schedules.
Yummy, yummy! We just had it again! This time I made the barbecue sauce myself using http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Sweet-Dianes-Barbecue-Sauce-195434 (which was a bit sweet but I think I may have used too much sugar). I used frozen pre-sliced red pepper, green peppers and onions. This dish would be super easy if I found pre-cut potatoes and chicken too. LOL I left out all of the additional veggies.
I found this recipe clear and easy to follow. However, the food seemed to lack much umph. Perhaps some additional spices would jazz it up, but I don't think i would try again. Sorry.
Very tasty! I used red pepper rings, tomato chutney (instead of BBQ sauce), fresh mushrooms, frozen peas, and a thinly sliced russet potato because that's what I had on hand and it turned out moist and flavorful, thanks to the chutney. I may experiment with additional spices next time just because I like trying different flavors.
