Directions

  1. Make four foil packets by the following method, using 1-foot squares of heavy duty aluminum foil: fold square in half and smooth flat. Seal each of the narrow ends by folding over each edge three times to make a 1/4-inch border, smoothing flat after every fold. You should now have a foil packet that is open on one long side. Repeat to form four packets.
  2. In a bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine the potatoes, chicken cubes, red peppers, onion, celery, and barbeque sauce; mix well. Evenly divide the mixture among the foil packets. Roll up the open end of the packets to seal.
  3. Place packets on a grill over the coals of a fire. Cook until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is fully cooked, about 25 minutes, depending on the intensity of the heat.

This tastes really good, but be sure to cook the potatoes *before* you add them to the parcels. Otherwise the potatoes don't cook through all the way, and if you increase the cooking time as another reviewer suggested, I found that the chicken got tough. I've made this twice and the second time I microwaved the potatoes until tender before mixing them with everything else and cooking. That seemed to work pretty well.

Good flavour, but if you cook it in the oven make sure you double the cooking time.

I have tried this recipe with success and will be making it for our July 4th BBQ.
