Recipe Rescue: Northern Colorado Foil Meal
When I first discovered foil cooking I thought my family was going to start eating at your house. I made all kinds of combinations in foil, a lot!
Foil cooking is so easy and portable and easy. Are you ready to get cooking? Come on!
Here’s what you’ll need: a small to medium boneless-skinless chicken breast (per person), a medium potato (per person), a medium onion divided into four, a lemon divided into 4, some dried thyme (or rosemary or both) and minced garlic-then a pat of butter and a drizzle of olive oil.
Putting it all together: Lay out 4 pieces of heavy duty foil (or double up on regular foil) drizzle foil with olive oil, place chicken breast done and top with potatoes, onions, seasonings/herbs and lemon. Place a pat or 2 of butter atop and wrap with the foil. I like to bring the foil up over the mound of goodness and fold it-then take the ends and fold in or twist. Place foil packets on a medium high grill or 425 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Packets will have trapped steam, be careful when you open them. Once they’ve rested off of the heat of 7 minutes enjoy.
