Grilled BBQ chicken foil dinner -5 simple ingredients and 30 minutes to make! An EASY and delicious dinner with no clean up.

One of our favorite dinners to make during the summer is tin foil dinners. They are so easy to prep and have virtually no clean up. The best part is you don’t need to heat up your house and can cook the foil packets out on your grill.The flavor of the chicken is perfect and tender. We love to serve the tin foil dinner with baked potatoes or rolls and sliced watermelon. My kids favorite.

MY OTHER RECIPES


I absolutely love grilling in the summer and watching my kids play out in the yard. When the weather is nice, we’re usually outside grilling! It makes dinner so easy.

For these chicken foil dinners I used just a few simple ingredients: BBQ sauce, red bell pepper, red onion and green beans. You can add in your favorite vegetables to mix it up.  Grilled BBQ chicken foil dinner -5 simple ingredients and 30 minutes to make! An EASY and delicious dinner with no clean up.

How to make a foil dinner

Lay out a piece of non-stick foil (or spray with non-stick spray). Place one chicken breast on top of each piece. Salt and pepper. Then spread about 2 Tablespoons of BBQ sauce onto each piece. Divide the green beans, bell pepper and onion among the 4 sheets. Add more salt and pepper on top of the vegetables if desired. Place another sheet of foil on top and then fold in each side, securing the sides of the packets.

Place each packet on the grill. Cook for about 20 minutes (or until chicken is cooked through), flipping at about 12 minutes. Brush with more BBQ sauce if desired.

I love brushing more BBQ sauce when the chicken comes off the grill and topping with a few green onions. Adds some color and so much flavor!
