A simple and quick way to enjoy the family favorite without using the oven. Note: If you wish, you can make 4 individual foil packets, but be careful - these will cook much more quickly!

Good recipe to use any seasonings you have on hand. I keep disposable foil pans of all sizes sprayed the pan with nonstick spray then sliced the potatoes and onion into it. Covered with foil and used indirect heat while our chicken cooked. Opened the foil one time to stir and check and the results were tasty potatoes with seasonings. The disposable pan was nicer to serve from and I did not have the mess of opening foil packages. Thanks for the recipe!

Very bland I was really surprised at how it turned out based on all the other reviews. The basil is a very strange taste with the pototoes. It was easy & quick to make but we didn't eat more than a few bites a person.

Very easy to prepare and the results were good! I used my crinkle cutter for a little more decoration. I will make them again and add some fresh rosemary from my garden too.

These were very good. I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on before serving but they didn't even need that really. I also used dried basil and they turned out fine. It's a keeper - love the garlic!

We are bigger fans of dill or other herbs with potatoes than basil so I substituted fresh dill. We cooked these in a disposable aluminum pan turning occasionally. Golden brown some parts crispy all delicious. I served this with "BBQ Beer Brat Kabobs " also from this site and a tossed green salad. It was a fantastic meal.

These turned out very nice. I baked them instead of doing them on the BBQ. I served them as a side dish to a nice pasta dinner. They went very well.

Very easy very tasty. I baked these in a casserole dish in the oven. Sprayed the dish first with vegetable oil cooked it covered.

A new family fav. I just can't wait to make them again. I can't think of anything that would go better with the BBQ roast.
