Campin’ and Cookin’

Alex and I randomly decided to go camping for one night this weekend. Neither of us has been camping since we were kids. Well, Alex is in the Army so it’s not like he doesn’t sleep outside for work a lot but not “officially” camping. The site where we camped had an outdoor grill that we used to cook this dinner. The recipe was originally a foil packet chicken meal that you cook in the oven but I figured it could easily be changed to cook on a grill. It came out really well but next time I would add more seasoning and spice. I saw the recipe on Kandice’s Cooking Creations and it was originally from Kraft Foods. I served this with pasta salad that I had made ahead and for dessert we had the classic camp food dessert, S’mores!

Sorry about the terrible, blurry pic but c’mon, we were camping!

Foil Pack Taco Chicken

FOIL-PACK TACO CHICKEN (Kraftfoods.com)

Prep Time:10 min
Total Time:50 min
Makes:4 servings, one packet each

4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
4 tsp. Taco Seasoning Mix
1/2 lb. red potatoes, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup Salsa
3/4 cup 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Four Cheese Mexican Style Cheese
1/4 cup Reduced Fat or Light Sour Cream

~PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning mix. Place 1/2 cup of the potatoes on center of each of four large sheets of heavy-duty foil; top each with chicken, salsa and cheese.
~BRING up foil sides. Double fold top and both ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
~BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165°F). Remove packets from oven. Let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening. Serve with sour cream. We just grilled on a charcoal grill for probably 35-40 minutes.
