This recipe was delicious but I would omit the chicken. Chicken came out very dry and flavorless. I would follow the recipe for some tasty veggies and then grill the chicken separately. Read More

Sooo good! And surprisingly juicey! I seared my chicken breasts in a pan first and than placed the chicken ontop of red potatoes and carrots. I added an onion slice ontop of that and than followed the rest of the recipe. I did cook my red potatoes in the microwave for 3 mins after they were chopped. I read other reviews saying their potatoes weren't cooked all the way through and that would solve the problem. A total keeper! Thank you! Read More

I do this in the oven AND on the grill. If you get a seasoned or marinated piece of meat the veggies are even more flavorful let alone the meat. This is a HUGE hit with the kids and with me... I love the lack of clean up!!! Also... I think those over cooked potatoes on the bottom are delish!! Turn half way through cooking to avoid scorching. Mini carrots caramelize and are fabulous! Haven't had this recipe listed... but make mine fequently. Read More

Everyone loved it. I liked the cleanup. My problem was the potatoes on the bottom of the foil pouch burned. Read More

I've made this/similar recipes by double-layering the foil and putting it on the outskirts of a campfire on a grill in the oven and w/o the foil en masse in a pressure cooker. I don't add butter to it but instead add zesty italian dressing over the top. Everyone I've ever served this to has loved it and has started doing it themselves. Read More

Very good and easy. I sprayed the aluminum foil with cooking spray to keep the potatoes from sticking. I had no problem with them burning. But I made sure to flip the packet over so they weren't on the bottom. The only change I would make would be to marinate the chicken ahead of time to give it some more flavor. Read More

We made this on the campfire coals and it was a big success! Spray the foil. We changed the order from the bottom building up; Slice of onion(buffer to keep chicken from burning) then chicken bacon potatoes carrots mushrooms butter & also added Lawry's Garlic and Herb Marinade. Read More

Used only 3 sliced peppered bacon; about 10 small varied colored potatoes; 3 breasts (that's what came in the pkg); a very large onion; and 1/4 cup butter. Also seasoned the breasts and browned first while cooking the bacon somewhat to lose a little of the fat. Removed the browned breasts and placed the onion on the bottom of dutch oven potatoes and carrots next then the chicken and finally the bacon on top before adding the diced butter. Placed the lid on the dish and cooked at 350 about an hour and then turned to 300 until dinner about another hour. The chicken was tender as were all the veges and the bacon gave the dish a decidedly spicy flair. There was quite a bit of "gravy" on the bottom probably because the onion had cooked away to nothing and mingled with the bacon drippings and butter. Easy and complete meal in one pot. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Instead of chopping the onion you can slice them medium-thick and make a "bed" for the rest of the ingredients to sit on. This helps prevent burning. Works especially well this way when cooking over a campfire. Read More
