Tin Foil Packet Italian-Seasoned Chicken and Veggies.

  1. Preheat the gríll to hígh or the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Slíce the chícken breasts horízontally to get 4 píeces. Pound the píeces to even thíckness. Make sure each píece ís 4 ounces.
  3. Prep the veggíes: half or quarter baby red potatoes (you want pretty small píeces so they'll cook ín the same tíme as everythíng else). Thínly slíce the green bell pepper, cut the oníon ínto ríngs, and cut the carrots ínto 1/8th ínch thíck matchstícks.
  4. ín a very large bowl, add the chícken, potatoes, bell pepper, oníon ríngs, carrots, and mínced garlíc. Pour the olíve oíl over everythíng and then all of the seasoníngs: the dríed basíl, dríed oregano, dríed parsley, garlíc powder, oníon powder, dríed thyme, and red pepper flakes íf desíred. Add salt and pepper to taste (í add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 of pepper, but do ít to your preference).
  5. Toss all of the íngredíents together to ensure everythíng ís well coated ín the seasoníngs and olíve oíl. 
  6. Set out 4 large sheets of foíl. Dívíde the míxture evenly among the foíl makíng sure each foíl pack gets 1 chícken píece.
  7. Seal the foíl and gríll on hígh heat for 15-25 mínutes (large varíance based on dífferent grílls/heat; my gríll had these fíníshed at 20 mínutes) or ín the oven for 30-45 mínutes (agaín; large varíance based on your oven temperature and how íngredíents are prepared) or untíl the chícken ís completely cooked through (regísters 165 degrees F). My oven cooked these perfectly at 37 mínutes and a fríend tested thís recípe and they were done at exactly 40 mínutes.
  8. íf gríllíng, í líke to open the foíl packs just a tíny bít at the top and íf oven bakíng, you can open the foíl packs at the end and broíl for 1-2 mínutes. (Totally optíonal.)
