Southwestern Chicken Tinfoil Dinner


If there is one thing I absolutely love about camping, it is the food. I grew up eating delicious meals made over camp stoves and fire pits and it is definitely something I want to pass down to my kids. When I found out that my friend, Jesseca, had just finished writing a camping cookbook, FOILED! Easy, Tasty, Tin Foil Meals, I knew I needed to get my hands on a copy. Jesseca is an incredible cook and I knew her recipes would be fantastic. We tried the Southwestern Chicken Tinfoil Dinner and now you can too! Just look how amazing that looks, you need to get your hands on this cookbook! 

You will need:
1 C. corn (I used canned)
1 C. canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 C. Pico De Gallo
1 C. Pepper Jack Cheese (we used Colby Jack instead)
non-stick cooking spray

Pull off two pieces of tinfoil that is about 18 inches long. Spray the tinfoil with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the corn, black beans and cumin together and divide the mixture in half, placing half in the center of each piece of tinfoil.
Sprinkle salt and pepper on the chicken and then add a chicken breast to the top of the mixture in each packet. I pounded my chicken breast down before I put them in the packets to help the chicken cook evenly. Top with Pico De Gallo and cheese. I love my husband's Pico De Gallo recipe.
Bring the top edges of your tinfoil together and fold them down twice. Fold the ends in, creating the packet.
Place the tinfoil dinners on hot coals for 30 minutes, flipping 2 to 3 times. If you aren't camping, like we weren't, you can place the packets on a hot grill, cooking on 1 side for 10-15 minutes and then flipping the packet and cooking on the other side for the same amount of time.


These packets were easy to make and really delicious, we will be making them again. We can't wait to try all of the tinfoil dinners found in Foiled. It is our kind of cooking in the summer, something we can make on the grill and avoid heating up the house!

To celebrate FOILED! I have teamed up with the author, Jesseca Hallows and some amazing bloggers to make sure you can have you own amazing summer eating outdoors!
