How to make it

  • Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken breasts and cut into pieces 1 1/2 inches square. Wash peppers and zucchini, peel onions, and cut into pieces the same size as the chicken. Wash mushrooms, dry with paper towel, and cut in half if large. Put all ingredients into zip-loc bag.
  • (You will need two large bags if you make the whole batch of this.) Mix marinade ingredients and pour over veggie/chicken mixture. Marinate in cooler 4 hours or longer.
  • To cook, burn a campfire until you have some good glowing coals and the flames have died down (or you can use charcoal if you have one of those great outdoor portable grills).
  • Tear 16 pieces of heavy duty tin foil into pieces about 15" long. Put a mixture of chicken and veggies on a piece of foil, fold foil over and roll up ends, then turn the packet over and wrap again in a second piece of foil.
  • (You can also make larger packets with more than one serving in each, but they cook a little faster in individual serving size packets.) Cook over coals or charcoal 20-30 minutes, turning every 3-5 minutes or so to prevent burning and sticking.
  • I wish I knew a good way to tell when these are done without unwrapping one, but I haven't mastered that yet.
  • The amount of time will depend on how hot your coals are, so start checking after about 15 minutes by gently unwrapping one packet (using tongs so you don't burn your fingers).
  • Serve this with "camping salad": Place cut up cucumbers, black olives and cherry tomatoes in a zip-loc bag. Pour your favorite salad dressing over (personal favorite is blue cheese). Serve right out of the bag for no clean up. It doesn't have much in visuals with the creamy dressing and the cherry tomatoes and black olives but don't let that deter you. Tastes great.

    I lived in St. Pete, FL for 16 years. Fort Desoto was our Sunday hang out. We would put our coolers, grills, ect. on rubber wrafts and kick our way out to the island off shore to spend the day cooking and beach combing. This would be a perfect lunch for out there... Great post... Jim
