Once you try these Foil Packs, you will be obsessed with what else you can wrap up and cook on your grill. You are only limited by your imagination. Honestly, I was really surprised by how well these turned out. We cooked our regular Sunday Roast in foil packs by wrapping up servings of chicken, potatoes and vegetables all in one pack – then grilling. OMG! The chicken was tender and a little chargrilled even though it was double wrapped in tinfoil. This is what aluminium foil is made for!
PREP BEFORE YOU GO CAMPING
Take the fuss out of campfire cooking. Foil packets can be be prepped at home and frozen before the trip. They are easy to grill over the campfire for a no fuss – no mess camp dinner.
Quick Tip: Be sure to use a heavy duty aluminum foil to prevent tearing and it keeps the tasty juices from running out of the packet. I always double up on foil just to be sure. You can wrap up a family sized serve or individual portions, Either way – it makes Camping Dinners SO MUCH EASIER!
We have cooked these in our oven, on our little Webber gas barbecue and on our charcoal cooker and they all worked perfectly.
