  1. Mix the olive oil, 4 teaspoons garam masala, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl until combined. Tear four sheets (12x18 inches each) of Reynolds Wrap(R) Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil. Center one chicken breast half on a sheet of foil; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon garam masala on both sides.
  2. Place the squash and onion slices on top of the chicken. Drizzle evenly with one-fourth of the olive oil mixture. Bring up foil sides. Double-fold top and ends to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Repeat to make four packets.
  3. Grill over medium-high heat in covered grill 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into chicken registers 165 degrees F.
  4. Open packets carefully by cutting along top fold with a sharp knife, allowing steam to escape; then open top of foil packet. To serve, top with yogurt and sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.

Footnotes

  • Make It!
  • Garam masala is a North Indian spice blend that can contain coriander, peppercorns, cardamom, cinnamon, caraway, cloves, ginger, and/or nutmeg, depending on the style of the blend. To make a simplified version at home, combine 1 teaspoon curry powder with 1 teaspoon ground cumin. Or try a complete recipe below.
  • In an 8x8x2-inch baking pan combine 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns, 4 teaspoons cumin seed, 2 teaspoons whole cloves, 1 teaspoon coriander seed, 1 teaspoon whole cardamom seed (pods removed), and 3 inches broken stick cinnamon. Roast in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes. In a blender container place roasted spices. Cover tightly; blend until very fine. Cool to room temperature. Store in a covered container in a cool, dry place. Makes about 1/3 cup.
  • REYNOLDS KITCHENS TIP:
  • Not in the mood to grill? Bake these packets in a 375 degree F oven 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into chicken registers 165 degrees F. The packets, whether grilled or baked, will lock in moisture for juicy and flavorful chicken, and cleanup is as easy as tossing away the foil!

This was okay but needs more salt. After tasting it I topped it with salt as I was eating this! For some reason most of the onions and zucchini burned. My grill was set to medium and registered ...

Next time I will make my own spice minus the cloves. The store brand was over powering clove flavor. It does have potential and will try again.
