How to wrap foil pack dinners:
When you are making a foil pack dinner, it’s important to wrap it correctly.
You want to leave enough space in your foil pack that there is room for steam to travel around and cook your food.
You also want to fold the ends of the foil together to seal in the heat and moisture, rather than just scrunching the foil together at the ends.
Be sure to use high quality aluminum foil so your foil pack is sturdy enough to transport. You can always add a second layer of foil if you are worried about it being too flimsy.
How to cook foil dinners in the fire:
We love making foil pack dinners all year long, but especially in the summer. These Pineapple BBQ Chicken Foil Pack Dinners are perfect to take camping.
Don’t place the foil packs directly in the flames. Instead place them on hot coals that are white in color and let cook for 20 minutes, turning halfway through.
Carefully open your foil pack and check to make sure chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.
Be sure to pack some long tongs and a campfire cooking glove for safety.
How to cook foil dinners in the oven:
If you’re not much of a campfire person, you can cook your foil pack dinner in the oven.
Follow the recipe directions below to prepare your dinner, then place foil packs on a baking sheet and cook at 375 degrees F for 35-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and peppers are tender.
How to cook foil dinners on the grill:
Grilling might be my favorite way to cook foil pack dinners. It’s really easy and takes the least amount of time. I also love the char that a grill gives.
To grill your foil pack dinners, heat the grill to medium-high heat then place foil packs directly on the grill.
Cook for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through.
Open carefully and check that chicken has been cooked through and peppers are tender.
