BBQ Chicken & Cheddar Foil Packet Dinner
Total Time: 52 mins.
Amount Per Serving: 1 packet


Servings: 4


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Place a 12×12 inch sheet of tinfoil on a work surface. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the barbeque sauce in the center of the foil. Place one chicken breast half over barbeque sauce and spread another teaspoon of sauce over chicken. Top with quarter of the potato, bell pepper and onion. Sprinkle with a little of the salt and pepper.

  3. Fold foil in half to cover contents; make narrow folds along edges to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients to assemble three more packets. Place the four packets on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.

  4. Open foil packets with scissors and carefully pull back edges, as contents may be very hot. Sprinkle a quarter of the cheese over the top of each chicken breast and return to oven, leaving packets unsealed, for two minutes or until cheese is melted. With a spatula, transfer the contents of each packet onto individual serving plates.
